Perl is a popular scripting language that is that is used to create different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the options which differentiate it from many other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code that complete predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. Basically, as an alternative to writing tailor-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you'll be able to "call" some module which already exists for this particular job and use only a couple of lines of code. Consequently, your script will be executed much more quickly as it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script much easier to modify since you'll have to search through much less code. In case you intend to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the necessary modules can be found on your server.
