It allows the user to change the functionality of a program beyond the modification of the core WordPress code. These codes are implemented through the various themes and plugins to hook the additional features. Modifying the core system is not a good option to change the default output. Instead, hooking own code up into the original code is a better way to add the functionality in a system.
