Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, that is employed to set up CGI scripts and a variety of applications. It is very convenient as you don't have to submit the same code time and time again so as to have some task executed several times, but you'll be able to apply modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of activities that can be called and executed within a script. This means that, you're able to include only a reference to a given module within your program code rather than using the entire module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it shall be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it'll be much simpler to maintain and modify. In case you want to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will probably need specific modules to be present on the website hosting server.
