Perl is a well-liked web-oriented programming language, which is employed to create CGI scripts and also many different applications. It's very handy for the reason that you do not need to submit the same program code time and time again to have some process executed a couple of times, instead you will be able to apply modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of tasks which can be called and executed within a script. In other words, you'll be able to include only a reference to a particular module in your code rather than using the entire module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it will be executed a lot quicker, not mentioning that it will be much easier to maintain and modify. When you want to use some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than writing your own, it'll most likely need specific modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.
