Perl is a powerful programming language that's frequently used for generating CGI scripts and many different web-based applications. Among its main advantages is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are employed to execute a variety of tasks and to extend the performance of a certain script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. This means that, in the event that five tasks need to be executed, you can use five lines of program code to call each of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is very handy and it may be used for a number of purposes, that's why a number of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used in addition to other programming languages for example PHP or Python.
