Perl is a popular programming language and among its major advantages is that it supports the so-called modules - short bits of code which contain subroutines and execute a number of tasks. The beneficial side of using modules is the fact that you will not have to write custom program code or include the entire code for a given task each time it should be executed. Alternatively, you will be able to include only a single line in your Perl script which calls a specific module, which in turn will perform the necessary action. Not only will this result in shorter and more optimized scripts, but it will help you make modifications swifter and easier. In case you aren't a programmer, yet you would like to start using a Perl application that you've found online, for example, it is likely that the app will need certain modules to be already installed on the hosting server.
