Perl is an effective programming language that's widely used for making CGI scripts along with various kinds of web-based apps. Among its major pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to do various tasks and to extend the performance of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of program code. To put it simply, if five tasks have to be performed, you can employ five lines of program code in order to call each one of the modules rather than including a couple of hundred lines used to generate the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really useful and it can be used for numerous purposes, that's why a wide range of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is generally used along with other languages for instance PHP or Python.
