Perl is a widespread programming language, that is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most effective programming languages in existence because it supports the use of modules - tiny bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast speed of your websites because you'll be able to add just one line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language normally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create numerous popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
