Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is used to make different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that distinguish it from other programming languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl program code which complete predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, instead of creating tailor-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you can "call" some module that already exists for this specific task and use just several lines of code. Thus, your script will be executed more quickly because it will be smaller. Using modules will also make your script simpler to modify considering that you'll have to browse through a smaller amount of program code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the mandatory modules are available on your server.
