Perl is a popular scripting language which is considered to be one of the most useful languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to set up various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a specific job which can be included in a script just by calling them i.e. you are able to write just a single line in your script to get a module executed, instead of having the whole code that's already included in the module anyway. Because Perl is compatible with many other languages and it features a lot of functions based on what a given application can do, it's employed by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.
