Perl is a well-known scripting language that's which is used to make various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which differentiate it from various other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code that complete predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, rather than writing tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you are able to "call" some module which already exists for this specific task and use just a couple of lines of program code. Due to this, your script shall be executed more rapidly because it'll be smaller. Employing modules will also make the script simpler to change as you'll need to browse through much less program code. If you would like to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the needed modules are present on your server.
