Perl is a preferred scripting language that is employed to make various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code which complete predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to writing custom-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" a module which is already available for this specific task and use only a couple of lines of program code. Because of this, your script shall be executed quicker because it will be smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make a script much easier to edit considering that you will need to browse through a smaller amount of program code. If you'd like to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the required modules can be found on your server.
