Perl is a well-known scripting language which is used to build different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the options that differentiate it from other languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code which execute predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to generating custom program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you're able to "call" a module that already exists for this particular process and use only a couple of lines of code. Due to this fact, your script shall be executed much more rapidly because it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make a script simpler to edit as you'll need to search through a smaller amount of code. If you'd like to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the necessary modules can be found on the server.
