Perl is a well-liked web-oriented computer programming language, that is designed to create CGI scripts along with various applications. It is very useful because you do not have to submit the very same code over and over again in order to get some action executed several times, instead you'll be able to employ modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of operations which can be called and executed within a script. In other words, you'll be able to add only a reference to a particular module inside your code rather than using the whole module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it shall be executed quicker, not mentioning that it'll be easier to maintain or modify. In case you would like to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it'll probably need certain modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.
