Perl is a well-liked web-oriented programming language, which is employed to generate CGI scripts along with various applications. It's very practical since you don't need to create the very same code over and over again in order to get some task executed several times, instead you're able to employ modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of tasks that can be called and executed within a script. In other words, you are able to add only a reference to a certain module within your program code instead of using the entire module code time and time again. This way, your script will be shorter, therefore it will be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be much easier to maintain and / or modify. In case you'd like to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script rather than creating your own, it'll probably need certain modules to be present on the hosting server.
