Perl is a well-known scripting language which is employed to build various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the options that distinguish it from alternative languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating custom code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you are able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular task and use only a couple of lines of program code. As a result, your script will be executed faster since it will be much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make the script easier to modify since you will need to browse through a smaller amount of program code. If you wish to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the necessary modules are present on the server.
