Perl is a well-liked web-oriented programming language, that's employed to create CGI scripts and also many different applications. It's really practical for the reason that you do not need to write the very same program code again and again in order to get some process executed several times, instead you'll be able to work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of operations that can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you're able to include just a reference to a particular module in your program code instead of using the entire module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, thus it'll be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain or modify. In case you want to use a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of writing your own, it will most likely need certain modules to be present on the website hosting server.
