Perl is a very popular scripting language that is which is used to build various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. One of the options which distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code that execute predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you're able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific task and use only several lines of code. As a result, your script will be executed a lot quicker because it will be smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script easier to edit because you'll have to go through much less program code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the needed modules are available on the server.
