Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, that is used to set up CGI scripts and many different apps. It's very practical due to the fact that you don't have to submit the same code again and again so that you can get some action executed several times, instead you are able to use modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of activities which 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 program code instead of using the whole module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it shall be executed a lot quicker, not mentioning that it'll be much simpler to maintain and / or modify. In case you would like to use a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will probably need particular modules to be present on the web hosting server.
