Perl is a popular scripting language which is used to make different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the features which distinguish it from various other programming languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl program code which do predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. In simple terms, instead of creating custom code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you are able to "call" a module which is already available for this particular job and use just several lines of program code. Therefore, your script will be executed more quickly since it will be much smaller. Employing modules will also make a script simpler to edit due to the fact that you'll need to browse through a smaller amount of program code. If you'd like to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the necessary modules are available on the server.

The abovementioned applies for both pre-made applications which you find online and for in-house built ones that you create. We provide such a multitude of modules for a couple of reasons - first, to give you a selection in respect to what kind of characteristics you are able to add to your applications and websites and second, to ensure that in case you want to use a ready script, it'll run flawlessly no matter what modules it will need. Because of this, some of the modules in our library are quite popular whereas others are used very rarely.
