Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, that is designed to create CGI scripts and also many different applications. It's really practical considering that you don't need to create the same program code over and over again so that you can get some process executed more than once, instead you'll be able to employ modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed in a script. In other words, you can add just a reference to a certain module in your code rather than using the entire module code time and time again. This way, your script will be shorter, which means that it'll be executed faster, not mentioning that it'll be a lot easier to maintain and / or modify. If you want to use some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it will probably need certain modules to be present on the web hosting server.
