Perl is a preferred scripting language which is employed to make various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that distinguish it from other languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code that execute predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. Basically, rather than creating custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you will be able to "call" some module that already exists for this specific task and use just a few lines of code. Consequently, your script will be executed a lot quicker as it'll be much smaller. Using modules will also make the script easier to edit because you'll have to go through a smaller amount of code. In case you would like to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the required modules are present on your server.
