Perl is a preferred scripting language which is which is used to build various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the attributes that differentiate it from other languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code that perform predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. Basically, rather than writing custom-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you can "call" a module which already exists for this specific task and use only several lines of program code. Thus, your script shall be executed much more quickly as it will be smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script easier to edit as you will need to go through a smaller amount of code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the mandatory modules are present on the server.
