Perl is a well-liked programming language and one of its main advantages is the fact that it supports the so-called modules - short pieces of program code which include subroutines and perform various tasks. The useful side of employing modules is the fact that you do not need to write custom-made code or add the whole code for a specific task every time it needs to be performed. Alternatively, you'll be able to include just one line in your Perl script which calls a particular module, which in turn will perform the necessary action. Not only will this lead to shorter and optimized scripts, but it'll also enable you to make changes faster and much easier. If you aren't a programmer, yet you'd like to work with a Perl application that you've found on the web, for instance, it is likely that the application will need some modules to be already set up on the website hosting server.
