Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, that's designed to generate CGI scripts and also various applications. It's really handy due to the fact that you do not need to write the very same code time and again so that you can get some process executed more than once, instead you're able to apply modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed within a script. In other words, you'll be able to add only a reference to a particular module inside your program code as an alternative to using the entire module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, thus it will be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain and / or modify. In case you'd like to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of writing your own, it will probably need specific modules to be present on the website hosting server.
