Perl is a well-known scripting language that is which is used to make different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the attributes that distinguish it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code which do predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you can "call" some module which already exists for this particular process and use just a few lines of code. Consequently, your script will be executed much more rapidly because it is smaller. Employing modules will also make your script easier to edit due to the fact that you'll have to go through a smaller amount of code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the needed modules can be found on the server.
