Perl is a popular scripting language which is designed to build various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features which distinguish it from many other languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code which do predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating custom code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you will be able to "call" a module which already exists for this specific job and use only several lines of code. Because of this, your script shall be executed much more quickly because it will be much smaller. Using modules will additionally make your script simpler to change because you will need to browse through much less program code. In case you intend to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the mandatory modules are present on the server.
