Perl is an excellent programming language which is widely used for creating CGI scripts along with a number of web-based applications. One of its main pros is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are used to do various tasks and to enhance the effectiveness of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. This means that, if five processess need to be executed, you're able to use five lines of code to call each one of the modules rather than adding a couple of hundred lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is very useful and it may be used for a number of purposes, so a number of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is often used in addition to other programming languages such as PHP or Python.
