Perl is a very popular scripting language that is that is used to make various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the attributes which distinguish it from many other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code that perform predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating custom-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you'll be able to "call" some module that already exists for this specific task and use just a few lines of code. Thus, your script will be executed a lot faster because it'll be smaller. Employing modules will additionally make your script much easier to change due to the fact that you'll need to browse through a smaller amount of code. If you would like to use Perl on your website, you need to make sure that the required modules can be found on your server.
