Perl is a popular scripting language that is designed to make various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that differentiate it from alternative programming languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code which do predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. Basically, rather than writing custom-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you can "call" a module which is already available for this particular task and use just a couple of lines of code. This way, your script will be executed much more rapidly because it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will also make a script easier to modify since you will have to go through much less program code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the mandatory modules can be found on the server.
