Perl is a well-known scripting language that's regarded as being one of the most practical programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to generate various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the internet is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a certain task which can be included in a script by calling them which means that you can write only one line in your script to have a whole module executed, instead of having the entire code that is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with many other programming languages and it features a lot of options depending on what a given app can do, it's employed by lots of popular companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
