Perl is a widespread programming language, that is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most effective programming languages in existence since it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a particular task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you are able to integrate only one line of program code to call a particular module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile language normally used for scripts, but it's been employed to generate numerous popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites for example IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
