Perl is a very popular scripting language that is employed to build various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the features that differentiate it from many other languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code that do predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. Basically, instead of creating custom-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you are able to "call" some module which already exists for this specific task and use just a few lines of program code. As a result, your script shall be executed a lot quicker because it is much smaller. Using modules will also make a script easier to modify as you'll have to go through much less code. If you intend to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the needed modules can be found on your server.
