Perl is a well-known scripting language that is that is used to build different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the attributes that distinguish it from alternative languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code that do predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, rather than writing custom-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you are able to "call" some module which already exists for this particular task and use only a few lines of code. Therefore, your script shall be executed a lot faster because it'll be smaller. Employing modules will also make a script much easier to modify since you will need to search through a smaller amount of program code. In case you wish to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the required modules are present on the server.
