Perl is a popular scripting language that's which is used to build various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the characteristics which differentiate it from alternative languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code that execute predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you're able to "call" a module that is already available for this particular task and use just a few lines of program code. As a result, your script will be executed more quickly as it is much smaller. Using modules will also make a script simpler to modify since you'll need to go through much less program code. In case you wish to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the necessary modules are present on your server.
