Perl is a widespread programming language and one of its key advantages is that it supports the so-called modules - short bits of code that contain subroutines and do numerous tasks. The convenient side of employing modules is the fact that you do not have to write custom-made code or add the whole code for a specific action every single time it should be executed. Alternatively, you can include only a single line in your Perl script that calls a specific module, that in turn will execute the necessary action. Not only will this give you shorter and more optimized scripts, but it'll also enable you to make modifications swifter and easier. If you are not a programmer, yet you'd like to use a Perl application that you've found on the web, for instance, it's likely that the app will need some modules to be already installed on your web hosting server.
