Perl is a well-known computer language, that is employed to build various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient programming languages these days as it supports the usage of modules - compact parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a particular task. The modules can save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites since you're able to include just one line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the code for the process within your script. Perl is a versatile language generally used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a lot of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites like IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
