Perl is a popular programming language and among its key pros is the fact that it supports the so-called modules - short pieces of program code which contain subroutines and do multiple tasks. The practical side of working with modules is that you will not have to write custom code or include the entire code for a certain process every time it has to be executed. Alternatively, you'll be able to include only one line in your Perl script that calls a specific module, that in turn will perform the necessary action. Not only will this give you shorter and more optimized scripts, but it will also help you make adjustments swifter and easier. In case you aren't a programmer, but you'd like to begin using a Perl app that you've found on the web, for instance, it is very likely that the application will need specific modules to be already installed on your hosting server.
