Perl is a widely used computer language, that is used to make various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be one of the most practical languages nowadays as it supports the use of modules - tiny pieces of program code with pre-defined subroutines which are designed to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save a lot of time and they can contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites as you can integrate just a single line of code to call a given module instead of using all the program code for the task in your script. Perl is a versatile programming language primarily used for scripts, but it's been used to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
