Perl is a preferred scripting language that is employed to create various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the options which differentiate it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code which do predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. Basically, instead of creating tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you'll be able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular task and use just a few lines of code. Because of this, your script shall be executed much more quickly because it'll be smaller. Using modules will, in addition make your script much easier to edit considering that you'll have to go through much less program code. In case you wish to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the necessary modules are present on your server.
