Perl is a preferred scripting language which is that is used to build various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the options that differentiate it from alternative languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code that execute predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating custom code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you will be able to "call" some module which is already available for this specific process and use just several lines of code. Consequently, your script will be executed a lot faster since it will be much smaller. Employing modules will also make a script easier to change due to the fact that you will have to search through much less program code. If you wish to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the needed modules are present on your server.
