Perl is a preferred scripting language which is used to build various web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the attributes which distinguish it from many other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to creating custom program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you'll be able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular task and use just a few lines of program code. Therefore, your script shall be executed quicker since it will be smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make the script much easier to modify due to the fact that you will need to go through much less code. In case you'd like to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the necessary modules are available on the server.
