Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is designed to make different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the features that differentiate it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl program code that complete predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. Basically, instead of creating tailor-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you're able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular process and use just several lines of code. Consequently, your script will be executed faster as it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make a script easier to change as you'll need to browse through a smaller amount of program code. In case you want to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the mandatory modules can be found on the server.
