Perl is a very popular programming language, which is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages these days since it supports the use of modules - small parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a specific task. The modules can save you lots of time and they will contribute to the rapid speed of your websites as you are able to include just one line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to create a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
