Perl is a very popular scripting language that is employed to build various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. One of the features which differentiate it from many other languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code which do predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. Basically, instead of generating tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you can "call" some module that already exists for this particular process and use just a few lines of program code. As a result, your script shall be executed much more quickly as it is much smaller. Using modules will also make the script much easier to edit because you'll have to go through much less code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the needed modules can be found on your server.
