Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, which is used to make CGI scripts as well as various apps. It's really useful as you do not have to produce the very same code again and again so as to get some action executed more than once, instead you're able to apply modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or sets of functions which can be called and executed inside a script. This means that, you will be able to include just a reference to a specific module inside your program code instead of using the whole module code over and over again. This way, your script will be shorter, therefore it will be executed a lot quicker, not mentioning that it'll be much simpler to maintain and / or modify. In case you would like to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will most likely need certain modules to be present on the web hosting server.
