Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, that's used to set up CGI scripts as well as a variety of applications. It is very handy as you don't need to write the same program code over and over again so that you can get some process executed a couple of times, but you will be able to work with modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions which can be called and executed in a script. In other words, you will be able to add only a reference to a certain module inside your program code rather than using the entire module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, thus it shall be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it'll be much simpler to maintain and modify. If you'd like to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it'll probably need certain modules to be pre-installed on the hosting server.
