Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, which is employed to make CGI scripts and also various apps. It's really handy due to the fact that you do not have to write the same code repeatedly to get some task executed more than once, instead you will be able to apply modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed in a script. In other words, you can add just a reference to a given module inside your program code instead of using the whole module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, therefore it'll be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it'll be a lot easier to maintain and modify. If you would like to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will most likely need specific modules to be present on the hosting server.
