Perl is a powerful programming language which is frequently used for setting up CGI scripts as well as a number of web-based applications. Among its main advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are used to execute multiple tasks and to enhance the functionality of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. This means that, when five jobs should be executed, you are able to use five lines of code in order to call each of the modules instead of adding hundreds of lines used to generate the actual modules inside your script. Perl is really handy and it can be used for many different purposes, so a number of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It's commonly used with other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.
