Perl is a very popular scripting language that's used to build various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the features that differentiate it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code which complete predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. Basically, rather than writing tailor-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" some module which already exists for this particular task and use only several lines of program code. Therefore, your script shall be executed much more quickly since it is smaller. Employing modules will also make a script much easier to change since you will need to go through a smaller amount of program code. In case you would like to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the required modules are available on your server.
