Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most useful languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it is used to generate multiple web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the market is the support for modules - sets of commands for a specific job which can be integrated into a script just by calling them i.e. you can write just a single line in your script to get a whole module executed, rather than having the entire program code which is already included in the module anyway. Since Perl supports numerous other languages and it comes with a lot of functions depending on what a specific app can do, it is employed by a number of renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etc.
