Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is employed to make various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. One of the characteristics which distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code that do predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, instead of generating custom-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you'll be able to "call" some module that is already available for this specific job and use just a few lines of program code. Thus, your script shall be executed more rapidly because it is much smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script simpler to edit due to the fact that you will need to go through a smaller amount of program code. If you would like to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the required modules can be found on your server.
