Perl is an excellent programming language that is commonly used for making CGI scripts and also various kinds of web-based applications. One of its major pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code which are used to do various tasks and to increase the performance of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, in the event that five processess have to be performed, you're able to use five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules instead of including a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is really useful and it can be used for numerous purposes, so a wide range of corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used in addition to other languages such as PHP or Python.
