Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, which is used to set up CGI scripts and also a variety of applications. It is really convenient due to the fact that you do not need to write the same code time and time again so that you can get some process executed several times, but you are able to apply modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or sets of functions which can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you'll be able to include only a reference to a particular module inside your program code rather than using the whole module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it shall be executed faster, not mentioning that it'll be easier to maintain or modify. If you'd like to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of creating your own, it will most likely need certain modules to be present on the website hosting server.
