Perl is a well-liked web-oriented programming language, that's employed to make CGI scripts as well as various apps. It is really practical because you do not need to submit the same code time and again in order to have some process executed a couple of times, but you can work with modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or sets of tasks that can be called and executed in a script. This means that, you can add just a reference to a certain module in your code instead of using the entire module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it'll be executed faster, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain and modify. In case you'd like to use a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it will most likely need certain modules to be present on the website hosting server.
