Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is designed to create different web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the options which distinguish it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code that do predefined tasks and they're universally accepted. Basically, instead of writing custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you will be able to "call" a module which is already available for this particular process and use just a couple of lines of code. Thus, your script will be executed a lot faster as it is much smaller. Using modules will also make the script simpler to change because you'll have to browse through much less program code. In case you wish to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the necessary modules are available on your server.
