Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's which is used to build various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that distinguish it from various other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code that execute predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to writing custom program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you can "call" a module which already exists for this specific process and use just a few lines of program code. Consequently, your script shall be executed more quickly because it is smaller. Using modules will also make your script much easier to modify since you'll need to go through a smaller amount of program code. In case you wish to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the required modules are available on the server.
