Perl is a popular scripting language that is designed to create various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the options that distinguish it from various other languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code which execute predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, instead of creating custom-made program code to do 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 job and use just several lines of code. Thus, your script shall be executed a lot quicker since it'll be smaller. Using modules will additionally make your script easier to change because you will have to go through a smaller amount of program code. In case you wish to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the necessary modules are available on the server.
