Perl is an effective programming language that is commonly used for making CGI scripts and also many different web-based apps. Among its key advantages is the fact that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code which are employed to do numerous tasks and to increase the effectiveness of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of code. In other words, when five tasks need to be performed, you can use five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules instead of adding a few hundred lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is really practical and it may be used for numerous purposes, so a wide range of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used along with other languages for instance PHP or Python.
