Perl is a preferred scripting language that's which is used to create various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the options which distinguish it from many other programming languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl program code which execute predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. Basically, instead of generating tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you're able to "call" a module that is already available for this particular task and use just a couple of lines of code. Due to this fact, your script will be executed a lot faster because it will be smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script easier to change considering that you will need to go through much less program code. If you'd like to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the required modules are present on the server.
