Perl is a well-liked web-oriented programming language, that is designed to generate CGI scripts and many different apps. It's very handy considering that you don't need to generate the same program code time and time again to get some process executed a couple of times, instead you're able to employ modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of tasks which can be called and executed inside a script. In other words, you are able to include only a reference to a particular module in your program code instead of using the entire module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it will be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it'll be a lot easier to maintain and modify. When you want to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script rather than writing your own, it'll most likely need certain modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.
