Perl is a powerful programming language that's commonly used for generating CGI scripts and also a variety of web-based apps. Among its key pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are designed to perform various tasks and to increase the functionality of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of program code. In other words, if five processess have to be performed, you'll be able to use five lines of code to call each one of the modules instead of including hundreds of lines used to generate the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very practical and it may be used for numerous purposes, so a lot of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used along with other languages for example PHP or Python.
