Perl is a popular scripting language that's designed to create different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that distinguish it from various other languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code that do predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, rather than creating tailor-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you're able to "call" a module that is already available for this specific process and use just several lines of code. Because of this, your script will be executed more quickly because it will be much smaller. Using modules will also make the script easier to edit as you will have to browse through a smaller amount of program code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the mandatory modules are available on your server.
