Perl is a well-known computer language, which is used to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient programming languages available because it supports the usage of modules - small parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a certain task. The modules will save you lots of time and they can contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites because you'll be able to add only 1 line of code to call a specific module rather than using all of the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to create a lot of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
