Perl is a preferred scripting language that's that is used to create different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that distinguish it from many other programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating tailor-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you are able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific process and use just a few lines of code. Due to this, your script shall be executed a lot faster since it'll be much smaller. Using modules will additionally make your script much easier to change considering that you will have to browse through a smaller amount of program code. In case you intend to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the needed modules can be found on your server.
