Perl is a preferred scripting language that's employed to make various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the options which differentiate it from alternative languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl program code which complete predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to generating custom code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you will be able to "call" some module which is already available for this specific process and use only a few lines of program code. Due to this fact, your script will be executed a lot quicker because it is smaller. Using modules will also make a script simpler to modify due to the fact that you will need to go through a smaller amount of program code. In case you intend to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the needed modules are present on the server.
