Perl is a widespread programming language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most practical languages available as it supports the use of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites as you will be able to include just a single 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-functional language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to create a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
