Perl is a popular scripting language that is which is used to build different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the options that distinguish it from many other languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code that execute predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to generating tailor-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you're able to "call" some module which is already available for this particular task and use just a few lines of code. Consequently, your script will be executed faster since it will be much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script simpler to modify because you'll have to browse through a smaller amount of code. If you want to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the required modules can be found on the server.
