Perl is a well-known scripting language that's which is used to build various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the features which distinguish it from many other programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code which perform predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating custom-made program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you can "call" some module which already exists for this specific task and use only a few lines of code. Thus, your script will be executed a lot faster since it is smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script simpler to modify due to the fact that you'll have to go through much less program code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the required modules can be found on the server.
