Perl is a very popular scripting language that is which is used to create various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the features that distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code which do predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, instead of writing custom-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you can "call" some module that already exists for this specific job and use just a couple of lines of program code. As a result, your script shall be executed much more rapidly as it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script much easier to modify because you will need to browse through much less program code. If you wish to use Perl on your site, you should ensure that the necessary modules can be found on your server.
