Perl is a widespread 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 variety of tasks. The useful side of employing modules is that you do not need to write custom program code or add the whole code for a certain process each and every time it needs to be performed. Instead, you'll be able to include just a single line in your Perl script that calls a particular module, that in turn will perform the necessary task. Not only will this lead to shorter and enhanced scripts, but it will help you make changes a lot quicker and much easier. In case you aren't a programmer, but you'd like to start using a Perl application that you've found on the worldwide web, for instance, it's likely that the app will need certain modules to be already installed on your web hosting server.

plan that you pick. The aforementioned is valid for both pre-made applications that you get online and for custom-made ones that you write. We offer such a large number of modules for two reasons - first of all, to provide you with different options in respect to what kind of features you are able to add to your applications and sites and secondly, to guarantee that in case you want to employ a ready script, it will run properly regardless of what modules it will require.
