Perl is a well-known scripting language that's that is used to create different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. One of the attributes which differentiate it from various other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code which do predefined tasks and they're commonly accepted. Basically, instead of writing custom code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you'll be able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular process and use just a few lines of code. In consequence, your script will be executed much more quickly because it is smaller. Employing modules will also make the script easier to modify since you will have to search through a smaller amount of code. If you would like to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the required modules are present on the server.
