Perl is a very popular language, which is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical programming languages in existence since it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to execute a particular task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the quick speed of your sites because you will be able to include just one line of code to call a certain module instead of using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language generally used for scripts, but it has been used to create a lot of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
