Perl is a widespread programming language and among its main advantages is the fact that it supports the so-called modules - short bits of program code that contain subroutines and perform a variety of tasks. The useful side of using modules is the fact that you don't have to write custom-made program code or add the entire code for a given action each time it needs to be performed. Alternatively, you'll be able to include only a single line in your Perl script which calls a specific module, which in turn will perform the needed task. Not only will this provide you with shorter and improved scripts, but it'll also allow you to make adjustments quicker and much easier. In case you are not a programmer, yet you'd like to use a Perl app that you've found on the web, for example, it's very likely that the application will need certain modules to be already installed on your website hosting server.
