Perl is a well-liked programming language and among its main pros is that it works with the so-called modules - short pieces of program code that include subroutines and do a variety of tasks. The handy side of using modules is the fact that you do not have to create custom-made program code or include the entire code for some process each and every time it needs to be performed. Instead, you are able to add just a single line in your Perl script which calls a specific module, which consequently will execute the needed task. Not only will this lead to shorter and more optimized scripts, but it will enable you to make adjustments faster and much easier. In case you aren't a programmer, still you would like to begin using a Perl application which you've discovered on the Internet, for instance, it's likely that the application will need certain modules to be already set up on your hosting server.
