Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is used to create different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the options that distinguish it from other languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code which perform predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, instead of writing custom-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you'll be able to "call" some module which already exists for this specific job and use only several lines of code. Thus, your script shall be executed more quickly because it is smaller. Employing modules will also make your script much easier to edit considering that you will need to search through a smaller amount of code. If you would like to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the needed modules are available on the server.
