Perl is a very popular scripting language which is that is used to create various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which differentiate it from many other languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl program code that perform predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, rather than writing tailor-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you will be able to "call" a module which already exists for this particular job and use just a few lines of program code. This way, your script shall be executed more quickly as it'll be much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make a script much easier to edit because you'll have to browse through much less program code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the necessary modules are present on the server.
