Perl is a preferred scripting language that is which is used to create various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the attributes that differentiate it from many other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code which execute predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating custom code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you'll be able to "call" a module which already exists for this specific task and use only a few lines of code. Because of this, your script shall be executed a lot faster because it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will also make the script much easier to modify considering that you'll need to browse through much less code. In case you wish to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the needed modules are present on the server.
