Perl is a well-known scripting language that's designed to make various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the options that distinguish it from alternative languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl program code that perform predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to creating custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you are able to "call" a module that is already available for this particular process and use only several lines of code. Therefore, your script shall be executed more quickly since it'll be smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script simpler to modify as you will need to search through a smaller amount of program code. If you would like to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the necessary modules are available on your server.
