Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, that is used to create CGI scripts and also many different applications. It's very practical for the reason that you do not have to generate the very same code repeatedly to get some action executed several times, instead you can apply modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of functions that can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you are able to include just a reference to a given module within your code instead of using the entire module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it shall be executed faster, not mentioning that it will be much easier to maintain or modify. In case you would like to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it will probably need certain modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.
