Perl is a widely used programming language and among its major pros is that it works with the so-called modules - short bits of program code that contain subroutines and perform numerous tasks. The useful side of employing modules is that you won't have to write custom-made code or include the entire code for some process each time it should be executed. Alternatively, you are able to include just a single line in your Perl script which calls a particular module, which in turn will execute the needed action. Not only will this give you shorter and improved scripts, but it will also enable you to make adjustments quicker and much easier. If you are not a programmer, yet you'd like to start using a Perl app that you've found on the worldwide web, for example, it is likely that the app will require specific modules to be already installed on your website hosting server.
