Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is designed to make various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which distinguish it from many other languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code which complete predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. Basically, rather than writing tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you can "call" some module which is already available for this particular job and use only a few lines of program code. Due to this, your script will be executed more quickly since it will be much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make your script much easier to change considering that you will have to go through much less code. If you wish to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the mandatory modules can be found on your server.
