Perl is a widespread computer language, which is used to set up various web apps and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers consider it to be among the most efficient programming languages nowadays since it supports the usage of modules - compact pieces of code with pre-defined subroutines that are used to perform a specific task. The modules can help you save lots of time and they will contribute to the quick loading speed of your sites as you are able to integrate only 1 line of code to call a given module rather than using all the program code for the process in your script. Perl is a multi-functional language often used for scripts, but it's been used to generate numerous popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also employed on high-traffic websites including IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.
