Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is employed to make different web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the attributes that distinguish it from other languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl program code that do predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. Basically, instead of creating tailor-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you can "call" a module which already exists for this specific task and use just a few lines of program code. In consequence, your script will be executed much more quickly since it is smaller. Using modules will also make a script simpler to change considering that you'll have to browse through much less code. In case you wish to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the needed modules are available on your server.
