Among the options that distinguish it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code that do predefined jobs and they're universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating custom-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you are able to "call" some module which is already available for this specific process and use just a few lines of code. This way, your script shall be executed much more quickly as it is smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make the script simpler to change as you'll have to search through much less code. In case you intend to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the necessary modules can be found on your server.
