Perl is a popular language, that is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be among the most efficient languages these days since it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites since you can integrate just one line of code to call a certain module instead of using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to create a variety of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
