Perl is a well-liked scripting language that's designed to build different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the features which differentiate it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code that do predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating custom program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you're able to "call" a module which is already available for this specific task and use only several lines of code. Thus, your script shall be executed a lot quicker since it is smaller. Using modules will also make your script much easier to modify as you will need to search through much less program code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the needed modules are available on the server.
