Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, which is employed to generate CGI scripts along with various applications. It is really convenient due to the fact that you do not have to submit the same program code over and over again to get some task executed several times, instead you're able to employ modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed inside a script. In other words, you can add just a reference to a specific module within your code as an alternative to using the entire module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it'll be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it'll be easier to maintain and modify. When you would like to employ some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it'll most likely need certain modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.
