Perl is a preferred scripting language that is used to build various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that distinguish it from various other languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code which execute predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, instead of writing custom program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you can "call" a module which is already available for this specific process and use only several lines of code. As a result, your script shall be executed quicker because it is much smaller. Using modules will also make a script simpler to modify as you will have to go through a smaller amount of program code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the needed modules are available on your server.
