Perl is a popular scripting language that's designed to create various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code that do predefined tasks and they're universally accepted. In simple terms, instead of generating tailor-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you are able to "call" a module that is already available for this particular job and use just a few lines of program code. Therefore, your script will be executed quicker because it is smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script much easier to edit as you will need to go through a smaller amount of code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the mandatory modules can be found on the server.
