One of the characteristics which differentiate it from other programming languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl program code that do predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, rather than writing custom-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you are able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular task and use only several lines of program code. Due to this fact, your script shall be executed a lot faster because it is much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make a script easier to modify due to the fact that you'll need to browse 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 available on the server.
