Perl is a well-known language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers consider it to be among the most practical programming languages in existence because it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a particular task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid speed of your sites as you will be able to integrate just one line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional language often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
