Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, that is used to set up CGI scripts and various apps. It's really useful since you do not have to create the very same program code time and time again to get some task executed several times, but you can apply modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or sets of functions that can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you will be able to include only a reference to a given module inside your code instead of using the whole module code over and over again. This way, your script will be shorter, which means that it will be executed much faster, not mentioning that it'll be a lot easier to maintain or modify. In case you would like to use a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of writing your own, it will probably need certain modules to be present on the website hosting server.
