Perl is a very popular language, which is employed to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages out there because it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a specific task. The modules will save you lots of time and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you can integrate only one line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional language normally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
