Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's which is used to create various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the attributes that differentiate it from many other languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl program code that do predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, instead of writing custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" a module which already exists for this specific job and use just a couple of lines of code. In consequence, your script will be executed more rapidly as it is smaller. Employing modules will also make a script easier to change since you will need to go through a smaller amount of program code. In case you wish to use Perl on your website, you need to make sure that the needed modules can be found on your server.
