Perl is an effective programming language that's frequently used for creating CGI scripts as well as various web-based applications. One of its main pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to execute numerous tasks and to increase the effectiveness of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. In other words, when five processess have to be executed, you are able to use five lines of program code in order to call each one of the modules rather than including hundreds of lines used to generate the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really practical and it can be used for a variety of purposes, that's why a wide range of corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used along with other programming languages such as PHP or Python.
