Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, that is designed to generate CGI scripts and a variety of apps. It's very practical since you do not have to create the same code again and again to get some process executed several times, but you'll be able to apply modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities which can be called and executed inside a script. This means that, you will be able to add just a reference to a given module within your program code instead of using the entire module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it shall be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it'll be a lot easier to maintain or modify. When you would like to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it'll most likely need specific modules to be present on the hosting server.
