Perl is an excellent programming language that is widely used for generating CGI scripts and different web-based apps. Among its major advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are used to do numerous tasks and to enhance the functionality of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. To put it simply, if five processess have to be performed, you're able to employ five lines of code in order to call each of the modules rather than adding hundreds of lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is really practical and it may be used for a variety of purposes, so a wide range of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's commonly used in addition to other programming languages like PHP or Python.
