Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, which is employed to set up CGI scripts as well as a variety of apps. It is really handy as you do not have to write the same program code time and time again so as to have some action executed several times, but you can use modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities that can be called and executed inside a script. In other words, you will be able to add just a reference to a certain module inside your program code instead of using the whole module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it shall be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain and modify. In case you'd like to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it'll most likely need particular modules to be present on the website hosting server.
