Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, which is designed to create CGI scripts and also various applications. It is really handy since you do not need to write the same code over and over to get some task executed a couple of times, instead you can work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed in a script. In other words, you are able to include just a reference to a given module inside your code as an alternative to using the whole module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it'll be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain 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'll probably need particular modules to be present on the web hosting server.
