Perl is a preferred scripting language that is used to create various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. One of the options that differentiate it from other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code that perform predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you're able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific job and use just a few lines of code. In consequence, your script will be executed more quickly since it will be smaller. Employing modules will also make a script simpler to edit as you will have to go through a smaller amount of program code. In case you intend to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the needed modules are available on your server.
