Perl is a preferred scripting language that's used to make various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the options which distinguish it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code that perform predefined tasks and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to generating custom-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you can "call" some module that already exists for this specific job and use just several lines of code. In consequence, your script will be executed more quickly since it will be much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make the script much easier to change as you'll have to browse through much less program code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the mandatory modules can be found on the server.
