Perl is a very popular scripting language which is designed to make various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features which differentiate it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code which complete predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to creating custom program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you can "call" a module that already exists for this particular task and use just a few lines of program code. Thus, your script shall be executed much more rapidly as it will be smaller. Using modules will also make the script much easier to modify as you'll need to go through much less code. In case you intend to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the mandatory modules can be found on the server.
