Perl is a preferred scripting language that is employed to create various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the features which differentiate it from other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. Basically, rather than writing tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" a module that is already available for this particular task and use only several lines of code. Therefore, your script will be executed a lot faster because it will be much smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script easier to edit since you'll have to browse through a smaller amount of program code. If you'd like to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the needed modules are present on the server.
