Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's that is used to build various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. One of the features that differentiate it from alternative languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code which do predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, instead of generating custom program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you're able to "call" a module that is already available for this particular job and use just a couple of lines of program code. As a result, your script shall be executed a lot quicker as it is much smaller. Employing modules will also make the script much easier to modify considering that you'll have to go through much less code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your website, you need to make sure that the mandatory modules are present on your server.
