Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, that's used to generate CGI scripts as well as various applications. It's really convenient as you do not need to submit the same code time and time again so that you can get some action executed several times, but you're able to apply modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of operations which can be called and executed in a script. That is to say, you will be able to include just a reference to a particular module inside your code as an alternative to using the whole module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it will be executed a lot quicker, not mentioning that it'll be much easier to maintain and / or modify. In case you wish to employ some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than creating your own, it'll most likely need particular modules to be present on the website hosting server.
