Perl is a preferred scripting language that's which is used to create different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that distinguish it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code which perform predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. Basically, instead of generating custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you can "call" a module that already exists for this particular process and use only a few lines of program code. Because of this, your script will be executed faster since it will be smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script much easier to change as you'll need to browse through a smaller amount of program code. If you wish to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the mandatory modules are present on your server.
