Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is used to create various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the characteristics which distinguish it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code that execute predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to writing custom-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you are able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific job and use just a couple of lines of code. Therefore, your script will be executed faster as it is smaller. Employing modules will also make a script simpler to change due to the fact that you'll have to browse through much less program code. If you want to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the required modules are present on the server.
