Perl is a widespread programming language and one of its main advantages is the fact that it works with the so-called modules - short pieces of code that contain subroutines and do different tasks. The convenient side of using modules is the fact that you will not have to write custom-made program code or include the entire code for a specific action every time it needs to be performed. Instead, you can add just a single line in your Perl script which calls a specific module, which consequently will perform the needed action. Not only will this lead to shorter and more optimized scripts, but it will also allow you to make changes a lot quicker and easier. In case you aren't a programmer, but you'd like to use a Perl application that you've found on the worldwide web, for example, it's likely that the application will need specific modules to be already set up on your hosting server.
