Perl is a well-known scripting language which is that is used to make different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the options which distinguish it from alternative languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code that perform predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, rather than writing tailor-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you're able to "call" some module which already exists for this specific job and use just a couple of lines of code. Thus, your script will be executed quicker as it is smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script much easier to edit considering that you'll have to search through a smaller amount of code. If you'd like to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the required modules can be found on the server.
