Perl is a well-known language, that is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is one of the most effective programming languages these days since it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a specific task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they can contribute to the quick speed of your websites because you will be able to integrate just one line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software as well, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
