Perl is a widely used computer language, which is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most practical languages in existence as it supports the usage of modules - tiny pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites as you can integrate just one line of program code to call a particular module rather than using all of the code for the process in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed 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 more.
