Perl is a very popular scripting language that is used to create different web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that differentiate it from many other languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl program code which complete predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating tailor-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you will be able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular job and use just a few lines of program code. This way, your script shall be executed a lot quicker since it is smaller. Employing modules will additionally make the script simpler to edit due to the fact that you will have to search through much less program code. If you wish to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the required modules are present on the server.
