Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, which is designed to create CGI scripts as well as a variety of applications. It is very practical because you do not have to generate the very same program code over and over again in order to get some process executed several times, but you can use modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed in a script. In other words, you'll be able to include just a reference to a given module within your program code instead of using the entire module code time and time again. This way, your script will be shorter, thus it will be executed a lot quicker, not mentioning that it'll be a lot easier to maintain or modify. If you wish to use a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of creating your own, it will probably need particular modules to be pre-installed on the hosting server.
