Perl is a well-known programming language, which is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is one of the most efficient languages these days because it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a certain task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your websites as you'll be able to add only 1 line of program code to call a particular module instead of using all of the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
