Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, that is designed to generate CGI scripts and a variety of applications. It is very handy owing to the fact that you don't have to submit the very same program code time and time again in order to have some task executed several times, but you are able to work with modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of activities which can be called and executed in a script. This means that, you're able to include just a reference to a specific module in your program code rather than using the entire module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it'll be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be much easier to maintain and modify. When you would like to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it'll probably need specific modules to be present on the hosting server.
