Perl is an efficient programming language that is widely used for creating CGI scripts along with a number of web-based apps. Among its key pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are designed to execute multiple tasks and to enhance the effectiveness of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. To put it simply, in the event that five processess should be executed, you can use five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules instead of including a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really handy and it may be used for multiple purposes, that's why many corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is generally used along with other languages such as PHP or Python.
