Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is regarded as being one of the most useful languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to create various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the other languages on the market is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular process which can be integrated into a script by calling them i.e. you'll be able to write a single line in your script to get an entire module executed, instead of having the entire code which is already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl is compatible with a lot of other programming languages and it comes with a lot of options based on what a given app can do, it is employed by many famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.
