Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, which is used to make CGI scripts and also many different apps. It's really practical considering that you don't have to generate the same program code time and time again so that you can have some task executed a couple of times, instead you are able to work with modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions which can be called and executed inside a script. In other words, you're able to add just a reference to a specific module within your program code rather than using the whole module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it'll be executed faster, not mentioning that it'll be much simpler to maintain and modify. If you would like to use some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than creating your own, it'll most likely need specific modules to be present on the web hosting server.
