Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, that is employed to generate CGI scripts and also a variety of applications. It is very practical due to the fact that you don't need to create the very same program code again and again so that you can get some process executed more than once, instead you'll be able to apply modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or sets of functions which can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you will be able to add only a reference to a particular module within your program code rather than using the entire module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it'll be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it'll be much easier to maintain and / or modify. When you'd like to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will probably need particular modules to be pre-installed on the hosting server.
