Perl is a preferred scripting language that is used to build different web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the attributes which differentiate it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code which complete predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. Basically, instead of generating custom-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you are able to "call" some module that already exists for this specific task and use only several lines of code. Consequently, your script shall be executed faster because it is much smaller. Employing modules will also make a script simpler to change due to the fact that you will need to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you wish to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the required modules can be found on your server.
