Perl is a popular language, which is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most efficient languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - small parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to execute a certain task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites because you'll be able to integrate only 1 line of program code to call a certain module instead of using all the code for the task in your script. Perl is a multi-functional programming language most often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
