Perl is a widespread programming language and one of its main advantages is the fact that it works with the so-called modules - short pieces of program code which include subroutines and perform various tasks. The beneficial side of using modules is the fact that you do not have to write custom program code or add the whole code for a particular process every time it needs to be performed. Instead, you'll be able to add only a single line in your Perl script that calls a specific module, which consequently will execute the necessary action. Not only will this lead to shorter and optimized scripts, but it will also help you make modifications swifter and easier. In case you are not a programmer, still you would like to use a Perl application that you've found on the worldwide web, for instance, it's very likely that the application will need some modules to be already set up on the hosting server.
