Perl is a well-known scripting language that is which is used to make different web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code which do predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. Basically, instead of generating custom-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you're able to "call" some module which already exists for this particular task and use just a couple of lines of code. Due to this fact, your script will be executed more rapidly because it will be much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make the script easier to modify because you'll have to go through a smaller amount of code. In case you would like to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the necessary modules are present on your server.
