Perl is a well-liked web-oriented computer programming language, that is used to create CGI scripts and a variety of applications. It's really practical as you do not have to generate the very same program code time and time again so as to have some process executed more than once, but you are able to apply modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of tasks that can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you'll be able to add just a reference to a certain module in your program code rather than using the entire module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, thus it shall be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain and modify. In case you wish to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of writing your own, it'll probably need particular modules to be present on the website hosting server.
