Perl is a well-liked programming language and among its major pros is the fact that it supports the so-called modules - short bits of program code that contain subroutines and execute different tasks. The useful side of employing modules is that you don't have to create custom code or add the whole code for some task each and every time it has to be executed. Instead, you are able to add only a single line in your Perl script that calls a certain module, that in turn will perform the needed action. Not only will this result in shorter and optimized scripts, but it will also enable you to make modifications faster and much easier. In case you aren't a programmer, but you would like to begin using a Perl app which you've found on the web, for example, it's likely that the app will need specific modules to be already installed on your website hosting server.
