Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, that is employed to make CGI scripts and also various applications. It's very convenient because you do not need to produce the very same code over and over again in order to have some task executed a couple of times, instead you'll be able to employ modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of activities which can be called and executed in a script. That is to say, you're able to include just a reference to a specific module within your program code rather than using the entire module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it'll be executed quicker, not mentioning that it'll be much easier to maintain and modify. In case you wish to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of creating your own, it'll probably need specific modules to be present on the web hosting server.

package that you choose. The abovementioned applies for both pre-made applications which you get online and for tailor-made ones which you create. We offer such a large number of modules for two reasons - first of all, to offer you different options in respect to what characteristics you can add to your applications and websites and secondly, to guarantee that in case you would like to employ a ready script, it will run appropriately whatever the modules it needs. For this reason, most of the modules in our library are very popular whereas others are used rarely.
