Perl is a very popular language, which is employed to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages these days as it supports the usage of modules - small bits of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to execute a specific task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites since you're able to include just one line of program code to call a specific module instead of using all of the code for the process within your script. Perl is a multi-purpose programming language most often used for scripts, but it has been employed to generate a number of popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
