Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's which is used to build different web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the features which distinguish it from other programming languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code which complete predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. Basically, instead of creating custom code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you are able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular task and use only a couple of lines of code. As a result, your script shall be executed a lot faster because it will be smaller. Using modules will, in addition make the script much easier to modify considering that you will have to search through a smaller amount of program code. In case you wish to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the mandatory modules can be found on the server.
