Perl is a very popular scripting language that is which is used to create various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the options that differentiate it from various other languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code which execute predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to writing custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you will be able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific process and use just a few lines of program code. Therefore, your script will be executed a lot faster because it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script much easier to edit as you will have to browse through much less program code. If you would like to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the required modules are available on the server.
