Perl is a widespread programming language, that is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers believe that it is among the most effective programming languages nowadays since it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites since you are able to integrate just one line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create many popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
