Perl is a well-known language, which is employed to make various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages out there since it supports the usage of modules - tiny bits 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 can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites as you can add only 1 line of code to call a particular module rather than using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a universal programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a number of popular pieces of web software as well, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
