Perl is a popular scripting language which is designed to make different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the attributes that differentiate it from many other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code which perform predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, instead of creating tailor-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you're able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific job and use only a few lines of code. Because of this, your script shall be executed much more quickly because it is smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script easier to modify since you will need to go through much less code. In case you wish to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the required modules are available on your server.
