Perl is a well-known scripting language that's employed to create various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which distinguish it from alternative languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code which perform predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, instead of generating custom-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you are able to "call" a module which is already available for this specific job and use just a couple of lines of program code. Therefore, your script will be executed a lot quicker because it will be smaller. Employing modules will additionally make the script much easier to edit because you'll need to browse through much less code. In case you would like to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the needed modules are available on your server.
