Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, that is designed to set up CGI scripts and also a variety of apps. It is really handy for the reason that you don't have to write the very same program code again and again in order to have some process executed more than once, but you can apply modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of functions which can be called and executed within a script. That is to say, you are able to add just a reference to a given module within your program code rather than using the entire module code time and time again. This way, your script will be shorter, thus it shall be executed faster, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain and / or modify. In case you wish to use some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than writing your own, it will probably need certain modules to be present on the website hosting server.
