Perl is a powerful programming language that's commonly used for setting up CGI scripts and also different web-based applications. Among its major pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code which are employed to execute numerous tasks and to increase the functionality of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of program code. This means that, if five processess have to be performed, you're able to use five lines of program code in order to call each one of the modules rather than adding a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules inside your script. Perl is very practical and it can be used for many different 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 many more. It's commonly used in addition to other languages like PHP or Python.
