Perl is a popular scripting language which is designed to make various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which distinguish it from many other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code that perform predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to writing custom-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in the script, you will be able to "call" a module which is already available for this particular job and use just several lines of program code. Thus, your script shall be executed much more quickly as it will be smaller. Using modules will additionally make your script easier to change due to the fact that you'll have to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you would like to use Perl on your website, you need to ensure that the mandatory modules can be found on your server.
