Perl is a well-liked web-oriented programming language, that's employed to create CGI scripts along with a variety of apps. It's really convenient considering that you do not need to create the very same code over and over again to have some action executed a couple of times, but you're able to work with modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of tasks that can be called and executed in a script. That is to say, you are able to include just a reference to a given module inside your code instead of using the whole module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it shall be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be a lot easier to maintain and modify. In case you'd like to use a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of writing your own, it will most likely need certain modules to be pre-installed on the hosting server.
