Perl is a preferred scripting language which is that is used to build different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that differentiate it from other languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code which execute predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you'll be able to "call" some module which is already available for this particular task and use just several lines of program code. Therefore, your script shall be executed a lot quicker since it'll be smaller. Employing modules will additionally make a script much easier to modify considering that you will need to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you would like to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the mandatory modules are available on the server.
