Perl is a well-known scripting language that is which is used to create different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the features which distinguish it from alternative languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code which execute predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, instead of generating custom-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you will be able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular job and use just a few lines of code. Due to this, your script shall be executed much more rapidly since it is much smaller. Using modules will also make your script easier to edit since you'll need to go through a smaller amount of program code. In case you want to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the required modules are available on the server.
