Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's that is used to build different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the attributes that distinguish it from other languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code which complete predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to writing tailor-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you're able to "call" a module which already exists for this specific process and use only several lines of code. Consequently, your script will be executed quicker as it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will also make your script simpler to modify since you will need to go through much less program code. If you want to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the needed modules can be found on the server.
