Perl is a widely used language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient programming languages out there as it supports the use of modules - compact parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the fast speed of your sites as you're able to include just one line of program code to call a given module rather than using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language generally used for scripts, but it has been used to create a lot of popular pieces of web software too, for example cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
