Perl is a well-liked web-oriented programming language, that is employed to create CGI scripts and also a variety of applications. It's very useful as you do not need to create the same code repeatedly so that you can have some process executed more than once, instead you will be able to apply modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of activities that can be called and executed within a script. This means that, you will be able to add just a reference to a specific module within your program code instead of using the entire module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it will be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain and modify. When you'd like to employ some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than writing your own, it will probably need specific modules to be present on the website hosting server.
