Perl is a very popular scripting language that's which is used to create various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which differentiate it from other languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to generating tailor-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you can "call" a module that is already available for this particular job and use just a couple of lines of code. Consequently, your script will be executed faster as it is much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make a script easier to change because you will have to search through much less code. If you intend to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the required modules are present on your server.
