Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, which is used to generate CGI scripts along with a variety of apps. It is really practical considering that you do not have to submit the same code over and over again in order to have some action executed more than once, instead you will be able to employ modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities which can be called and executed within a script. This means that, you're able to include just a reference to a given module inside your code as an alternative to using the entire module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it shall be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it'll be much easier to maintain or modify. When you'd like to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will probably need specific modules to be present on the web hosting server.
