Perl is a preferred scripting language that's employed to build various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the features that distinguish it from other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code which execute predefined tasks and they're universally accepted. Basically, rather than generating tailor-made program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you will be able to "call" some module which already exists for this particular process and use only a few lines of program code. Because of this, your script shall be executed a lot faster since it'll be much smaller. Using modules will, in addition make your script simpler to change as you will need to browse through much less program code. If you would like to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the mandatory modules are present on your server.
