Perl is an efficient programming language that is frequently used for generating CGI scripts and also a number of web-based applications. One of its key pros is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are designed to perform numerous tasks and to increase the performance of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. In other words, if five tasks need to be performed, you'll be able to use five lines of program code to call each of the modules rather than including hundreds of lines used to create the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very convenient and it can be used for multiple purposes, that's why a number of corporations have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's often used with other languages for instance PHP or Python.
