Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, that is designed to generate CGI scripts and also various apps. It is really useful due to the fact that you do not have to generate the very same program code again and again to have some process executed several times, but you can work with modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities that can be called and executed inside a script. This means that, you are able to add just a reference to a certain module inside your code as an alternative to using the whole module code over and over again. This way, your script will be shorter, therefore it will be executed faster, not mentioning that it'll be much easier to maintain and / or modify. When you wish to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it'll probably need certain modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.
