Perl is an efficient programming language which is widely used for generating CGI scripts and also a number of web-based applications. Among its main pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code which are used to execute numerous tasks and to extend the performance of a given script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, when five processess should be performed, you can use five lines of program code to call each one of the modules rather than adding hundreds of lines used to generate the actual modules within your script. Perl is very practical and it can be used for various purposes, so many corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is often used with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.
