Perl is a well-known scripting language that is used to build various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the attributes that differentiate it from many other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code that do predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to writing custom code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you are able to "call" a module that is already available for this particular job and use only several lines of code. Because of this, your script shall be executed much more quickly since it will be much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make a script simpler to edit considering that you'll need to search through a smaller amount of program code. If you intend to use Perl on your website, you need to make sure that the mandatory modules can be found on the server.
