Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, which is employed to make CGI scripts and also a variety of apps. It's very practical since you don't have to produce the very same program code over and over again so that you can get some action executed more than once, instead you can use modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of activities that can be called and executed within a script. That is to say, you are able to add only a reference to a specific module in your program code as an alternative to using the whole module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it shall be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it'll be much easier to maintain and / or modify. In case you want to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script rather than writing your own, it'll probably need specific modules to be present on the web hosting server.
