Perl is a widely used programming language and one of its key pros is that it works with the so-called modules - short pieces of program code which contain subroutines and do a number of tasks. The useful side of working with modules is that you will not need to create custom code or include the entire code for a specific process each time it needs to be executed. Alternatively, you'll be able to include just a single line in your Perl script which calls a specific module, which consequently will perform the necessary action. Not only will this lead to shorter and improved scripts, but it will enable you to make adjustments faster and much easier. In case you are not a programmer, yet you would like to start using a Perl application that you've found on the worldwide web, for example, it's very likely that the application will need some modules to be already set up on your hosting server.
