Perl is a popular scripting language that is designed to make various web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. One of the attributes that differentiate it from alternative languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code that complete predefined tasks and they're widely accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to generating custom code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you are able to "call" some module that already exists for this specific job and use only a few lines of program code. Thus, your script will be executed much more rapidly since it'll be smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make a script simpler to modify as you'll have to go through a smaller amount of program code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the mandatory modules are available on your server.

XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are on the list of modules that you are able to access and take advantage of on your sites.
