Perl is a preferred scripting language that's designed to create different web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the attributes that distinguish it from many other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code that do predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. Basically, instead of writing tailor-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" some module that is already available for this specific process and use only a couple of lines of code. Therefore, your script shall be executed quicker as it will be much smaller. Using modules will also make a script easier to modify since you'll have to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your site, you need to ensure that the mandatory modules are available on the server.
