Perl is a well-known scripting language that's which is used to build various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features that differentiate it from alternative languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code that do predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating custom-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you can "call" some module that is already available for this specific task and use just a few lines of program code. This way, your script shall be executed faster since it'll be smaller. Using modules will additionally make your script much easier to modify since you will need to go through much less program code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the mandatory modules are present on your server.
