Perl is a widely used programming language, that is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most practical languages in existence because it supports the usage of modules - compact parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to execute a specific task. The modules can save you lots of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your sites because you are able to add only 1 line of program code to call a given module instead of using all of the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
