Perl is a popular scripting language that's designed to make various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code which do predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, instead of writing custom-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you are able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular job and use just several lines of program code. This way, your script shall be executed faster because it'll be much smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script easier to change as you'll need to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you would like to use Perl on your site, you should ensure that the required modules are present on the server.
