Perl is a well-known scripting language that is that is used to create different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the features which differentiate it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code which complete predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating custom-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you're able to "call" a module which already exists for this specific process and use only a few lines of code. As a result, your script shall be executed more rapidly since it is much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make your script easier to edit considering that you will need to browse through a smaller amount of program code. If you would like to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the needed modules are available on your server.
