Perl is a well-known scripting language that is which is used to build various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features that distinguish it from many other programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code which do predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, rather than creating custom-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you're able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific process and use only a few lines of code. Therefore, your script shall be executed a lot quicker because it'll be smaller. Employing modules will additionally make your script much easier to edit because you'll have to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the required modules are available on your server.
