Perl is a popular programming language, that is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most effective programming languages these days because it supports the use of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites as you're able to add just a single line of code to call a specific module instead of using all the code for the task within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language normally used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
