Perl is a popular programming language and one of its main advantages is that it works with the so-called modules - short bits of code which include subroutines and execute multiple tasks. The practical side of employing modules is the fact that you don't need to create custom code or add the entire code for some process each and every time it has to be performed. Instead, you'll be able to add just one line in your Perl script which calls a certain module, which in turn will execute the necessary task. Not only will this provide you with shorter and improved scripts, but it'll also enable you to make modifications faster and easier. In case you are not a programmer, yet you'd like to employ a Perl application which you've discovered on the Internet, for example, it's very likely that the application will require certain modules to be already set up on the web hosting server.
