Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is designed to make various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the attributes that distinguish it from various other languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code which perform predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. Basically, instead of writing tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you will be able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular job and use just a few lines of program code. Therefore, your script will be executed a lot quicker because it is much smaller. Using modules will additionally make your script easier to modify as you'll have to search through much less program code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the necessary modules are present on the server.
