Perl is a preferred scripting language that is used to build different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that distinguish it from many other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code that perform predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. Basically, rather than writing tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you are able to "call" a module that is already available for this specific job and use just a couple of lines of program code. Due to this fact, your script will be executed more quickly because it is much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make the script easier to modify considering that you'll have to go through much less program code. In case you want to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the required modules can be found on the server.
