Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, which is employed to generate CGI scripts along with various applications. It's very useful owing to the fact that you don't need to produce the same code over and over again so that you can get some action executed several times, instead you can apply modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or sets of functions that can be called and executed within a script. This means that, you will be able to add just a reference to a certain module within your code rather than using the entire module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it'll be executed much faster, not mentioning that it will be a lot easier to maintain and / or modify. In case you'd like to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will probably need particular modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.
