Perl is a popular programming language, which is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages nowadays because it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are employed to perform a certain task. The modules can save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites since you can integrate just one line of code to call a particular module rather than using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a universal language primarily used for scripts, but it's been used to generate numerous popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
