Perl is a popular computer language, which is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages in existence because it supports the use of modules - small pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a specific task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid speed of your sites since you are able to integrate only one line of code to call a certain module instead of using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a universal programming language often used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
