Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's that is used to build various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code that execute predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. Basically, rather than writing custom code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you're able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular process and use only several lines of code. Due to this fact, your script will be executed quicker as it'll be much smaller. Using modules will also make a script simpler to modify since you'll need to search through much less code. If you would like to use Perl on your site, you should ensure that the necessary modules are available on the server.
