Perl is a popular computer language, that is used to set up various web applications and CGI scripts. The majority of programmers believe that it is among the most practical languages in existence since it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to execute a certain task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites as you will be able to include only 1 line of program code to call a given module rather than using all the program code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to create numerous popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
