Perl is a preferred scripting language that is employed to build various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the features that differentiate it from many other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code that complete predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, rather than generating custom-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you'll be able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular job and use only several lines of code. As a result, your script will be executed a lot faster since it is smaller. Employing modules will additionally make the script simpler to modify due to the fact that you will have to browse through much less code. If you wish to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the required modules can be found on the server.
