Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, that is used to create CGI scripts and also a variety of apps. It's very practical owing to the fact that you do not need to generate the very same code time and time again in order to get some task executed several times, but you're able to employ modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or sets of tasks that can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you are able to include only a reference to a given module within your code as an alternative to using the whole module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, which means that it shall be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it'll be a lot easier to maintain and / or modify. When you'd like to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it'll probably need certain modules to be pre-installed on the hosting server.
