Perl is a very popular scripting language that's employed to make different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the characteristics which differentiate it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code which complete predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, instead of creating custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you can "call" some module which already exists for this particular job and use just a few lines of code. As a result, your script will be executed more quickly because it will be smaller. Using modules will also make your script easier to edit because you'll have to go through a smaller amount of code. In case you intend to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the mandatory modules are available on the server.
