Perl is a well-known scripting language that is designed to build various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. One of the features which differentiate it from various other languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl program code which perform predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to generating custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you're able to "call" a module that is already available for this specific task and use just several lines of program code. Consequently, your script will be executed quicker because it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script simpler to change due to the fact that you'll need to search through much less code. If you wish to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the required modules can be found on the server.
