Perl is a popular programming language and one of its key pros is the fact that it supports the so-called modules - short pieces of code which contain subroutines and perform a number of tasks. The useful side of using modules is the fact that you won't need to write custom-made code or add the whole code for a certain action each and every time it should be executed. Instead, you can include only a single line in your Perl script which calls a given module, which consequently will perform the necessary action. Not only will this lead to shorter and more optimized scripts, but it will also allow you to make modifications faster and easier. In case you aren't a programmer, still you would like to employ a Perl app that you've found on the Internet, for example, it is likely that the app will need specific modules to be already installed on the website hosting server.
