Perl is a preferred scripting language that is employed to make different web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that differentiate it from many other programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code that execute predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, rather than creating custom code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in your script, you'll be able to "call" some module that already exists for this particular job and use only a few lines of program code. Consequently, your script shall be executed much more rapidly since it is much smaller. Using modules will also make the script simpler to edit because you'll need to search through a smaller amount of code. In case you intend to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the mandatory modules are present on the server.
