Perl is an efficient programming language that is commonly used for setting up CGI scripts along with various web-based apps. Among its key advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are used to perform a variety of tasks and to extend the effectiveness of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. In other words, in the event that five processess have to be executed, you're able to use five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules rather than including a few hundred lines used to generate the actual modules within your script. Perl is really handy and it can be used for a variety of purposes, so 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 commonly used with other programming languages such as PHP or Python.
