Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, which is designed to set up CGI scripts as well as various applications. It's really convenient due to the fact that you don't have to submit the same code over and over again so as to have some process executed more than once, but you will be able to work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of tasks which can be called and executed in a script. In other words, you are able to add only a reference to a particular module inside your code instead of using the entire module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it'll be executed faster, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain or modify. In case you wish to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script rather than creating your own, it will probably need specific modules to be present on the hosting server.
