Perl is an excellent programming language which is frequently used for generating CGI scripts along with various kinds of web-based apps. One of its main pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are employed to do various tasks and to extend the functionality of a certain script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. This means that, if five processess have to be executed, you're able to use five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules rather than including a few hundred lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is very useful and it can be used for many different purposes, that's why a wide range of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's often used in addition to other programming languages for example PHP or Python.
