Perl is a very popular scripting language which is designed to create various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the options that differentiate it from alternative languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code which perform predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating custom-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you will be able to "call" some module which is already available for this specific process and use only several lines of code. Thus, your script will be executed quicker since it is much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make the script much easier to edit due to the fact that you will have to go through much less code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the needed modules are available on the server.
