Perl is an efficient programming language which is commonly used for making CGI scripts and also many different web-based applications. Among its main advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code which are designed to execute various tasks and to increase the functionality of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, if five processess need to be executed, you're able to employ five lines of code in order to call each of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is very practical and it can be used for many different purposes, so a number of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's ordinarily used with other languages like PHP or Python.
