Perl is a well-liked web-oriented programming language, that's designed to make CGI scripts as well as various applications. It's really useful owing to the fact that you do not have to create the same program code again and again in order to have some process executed more than once, instead you'll be able to use modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of tasks which can be called and executed inside a script. In other words, you will be able to include only a reference to a particular module inside your code as an alternative to using the entire module code time and time again. This way, your script will be shorter, which means that it will be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain and modify. When you wish to employ some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will probably need specific modules to be pre-installed on the hosting server.
