Perl is a powerful programming language that is regularly used for setting up CGI scripts and also a variety of web-based applications. One of its key advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code that are used to perform a variety of tasks and to enhance the functionality of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of code. This means that, when five jobs need to be executed, you're able to employ five lines of program code to call each of the modules instead of including a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is very practical and it can be used for numerous purposes, so a lot of corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's commonly used in addition to other languages for example PHP or Python.
