Perl is a very popular scripting language which is used to build various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which differentiate it from various other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code that perform predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. Basically, rather than creating tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you'll be able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular job and use just a few lines of program code. Due to this, your script will be executed a lot faster because it is much smaller. Using modules will additionally make your script much easier to modify as you will have to search through a smaller amount of program code. In case you intend to use Perl on your website, you have to make sure that the mandatory modules can be found on your server.
