Perl is an excellent programming language that's regularly used for making CGI scripts and also different web-based apps. Among its key advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are employed to do numerous tasks and to increase the effectiveness of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. In other words, if five processess should be performed, you are able to employ five lines of code to call each one of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is very useful and it may be used for numerous purposes, so a lot of corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is generally used in addition to other languages such as PHP or Python.
