Perl is a popular scripting language which is designed to make different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. One of the options that distinguish it from many other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to creating custom code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" a module which already exists for this particular process and use only a few lines of program code. Thus, your script shall be executed faster as it'll be much smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script easier to modify as you will need to browse through much less code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the mandatory modules are available on the server.
