Perl is a well-liked web-oriented computer programming language, that is designed to set up CGI scripts along with various applications. It's really convenient because you don't need to write the same code over and over so that you can have some task executed more than once, but you are able to employ modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of activities that can be called and executed in a script. This means that, you'll be able to add only a reference to a specific module in your code as an alternative to using the whole module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it shall be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it will be a lot easier to maintain or modify. In case you'd like to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will most likely need certain modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.
