Perl is a well-known scripting language that is which is used to build different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. One of the attributes that distinguish it from many other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code that execute predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. Basically, rather than writing custom program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you'll be able to "call" a module that is already available for this specific task and use just a few lines of program code. As a result, your script shall be executed more rapidly because it is smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make the script simpler to edit because you'll need to go through much less code. If you would like to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the necessary modules can be found on the server.
