Perl is a well-liked web-oriented computer programming language, that's designed to set up CGI scripts and many different applications. It's very practical because you do not have to generate the same program code again and again in order to have some process executed several times, but you're able to use modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities which can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you are able to add just a reference to a certain module inside your program code instead of using the whole module code over and over again. This way, your script will be shorter, therefore it shall be executed faster, not mentioning that it'll be much simpler to maintain or modify. In case you wish to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it'll probably need particular modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.
