Perl is an effective programming language that's regularly used for making CGI scripts along with various web-based applications. Among its major advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are designed to do multiple tasks and to extend the effectiveness of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. This means that, in the event that five jobs need to be executed, you'll be able to employ five lines of code to call each of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is very useful and it may be used for numerous purposes, so a wide range of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is often used with other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.
