Perl is a well-liked web-oriented programming language, which is used to make CGI scripts and many different applications. It is really handy because you don't have to produce the very same code time and time again so as to get some task executed a couple of times, but you're able to use modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities that can be called and executed inside a script. This means that, you can add just a reference to a specific module in your program code rather than using the whole module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it will be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it'll be a lot easier to maintain and modify. When you'd like to employ some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it will probably need certain modules to be present on the web hosting server.
