Perl is a widely used computer language, that is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages nowadays since it supports the usage of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a particular task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites because you're able to add just a single line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to generate many popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
