Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is used to build various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the features that distinguish it from many other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code that perform predefined tasks and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, rather than creating tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you will be able to "call" some module which already exists for this particular task and use just a couple of lines of program code. Consequently, your script will be executed a lot quicker because it is smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script easier to change since you will need to search through a smaller amount of code. In case you intend to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the mandatory modules are available on the server.
