Perl is a well-known programming language and among its major pros is the fact that it works with the so-called modules - short bits of program code which include subroutines and perform multiple tasks. The useful side of employing modules is the fact that you will not need to write custom-made code or include the entire code for a given action each and every time it needs to be executed. Instead, you'll be able to include only a single line in your Perl script that calls a particular module, which in turn will perform the needed action. Not only will this provide you with shorter and improved scripts, but it will also enable you to make changes swifter and easier. If you are not a programmer, still you'd like to employ a Perl application which you've found online, for example, it's very likely that the app will need specific modules to be already set up on your website hosting server.
