Perl is a well-known scripting language that's employed to make various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the options that distinguish it from many other languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code which complete predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to writing custom-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you are able to "call" a module that is already available for this particular task and use just a few lines of code. In consequence, your script will be executed more rapidly because it is much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make the script easier to modify due to the fact that you will need to browse through a smaller amount of program code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the needed modules are available on the server.
