Perl is a very popular scripting language that's employed to build various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the features that distinguish it from other languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code which perform predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating tailor-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you are able to "call" some module which is already available for this specific task and use only a couple of lines of code. This way, your script will be executed a lot faster since it is smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script much easier to change considering that you will have to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you wish to use Perl on your website, you need to make sure that the needed modules can be found on your server.
