Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, that's designed to make CGI scripts and many different apps. It's really practical as you do not need to produce the very same program code over and over so as to have some action executed a couple of times, but you can apply modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of tasks which can be called and executed within a script. In other words, you will be able to add only a reference to a certain module within your program code instead of using the whole module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it shall be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain and / or modify. In case you would like to employ some third-party ready-made Perl script instead of creating your own, it'll most likely need specific modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.
