Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, that's used to create CGI scripts and also a variety of applications. It's really convenient considering that you don't need to write the same program code repeatedly so that you can get some process executed several times, but you'll be able to employ modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of operations that can be called and executed in a script. That is to say, you are able to add only a reference to a particular module within your program code rather than using the whole module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it'll be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it'll be much simpler to maintain and / or modify. In case you want to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script rather than creating your own, it will probably need particular modules to be present on the website hosting server.
