Perl is a widely used language, which is employed to build various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages these days as it supports the usage of modules - compact bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to execute a particular task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites because you're able to add just a single line of code to call a given module instead of using all of the code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it's been employed to create a number of popular pieces of web software as well, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic sites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
