Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, which is employed to create CGI scripts as well as a variety of applications. It's very handy for the reason that you don't need to submit the same program code repeatedly in order to have some action executed several times, but you're able to use modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or sets of operations which can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you're able to add just a reference to a specific module in your program code rather than using the entire module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it shall be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain or modify. If you want to employ some third-party ready-made Perl script instead of writing your own, it will probably need specific modules to be pre-installed on the hosting server.
