Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, which is employed to set up CGI scripts as well as various applications. It is very convenient as you don't have to write the same code again and again in order to have some action executed several times, but you'll be able to employ modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of operations which can be called and executed within a script. In other words, you'll be able to add only a reference to a specific module within your program code rather than using the whole module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it'll be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it'll be much simpler to maintain and / or modify. If you would like to use 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 website hosting server.
