Perl is a preferred scripting language that is employed to build various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features that differentiate it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code which do predefined tasks and they're commonly accepted. Basically, rather than generating custom program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you are able to "call" a module which is already available for this particular task and use only several lines of program code. This way, your script shall be executed much more rapidly because it is smaller. Employing modules will additionally make a script easier to edit because you will have to browse through a smaller amount of program code. If you wish to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the mandatory modules are available on the server.
