Perl is a preferred scripting language that's designed to make different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the options which distinguish it from many other languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code that complete predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. Basically, rather than generating custom-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you can "call" some module that is already available for this specific process and use just several lines of program code. This way, your script will be executed much more rapidly since it will be smaller. Employing modules will additionally make a script easier to edit because you will have to search through a smaller amount of code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the mandatory modules are present on your server.
