Perl is an effective programming language which is frequently used for creating CGI scripts and a number of web-based applications. Among its major advantages is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are designed to do multiple tasks and to increase the efficiency of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. This means that, when five jobs need to be executed, you're able to employ five lines of program code to call each one of the modules rather than adding a couple of hundred lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is very practical and it may be used for multiple purposes, so many corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is commonly used in addition to other programming languages such as PHP or Python.
