Perl is a preferred scripting language that's used to make various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that distinguish it from many other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code which do predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, rather than writing custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you will be able to "call" some module which already exists for this specific job and use only several lines of code. As a result, your script will be executed a lot faster since it will be much smaller. Using modules will additionally make your script simpler to edit as you'll have to search through much less code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your site, you should ensure that the necessary modules can be found on your server.
