Perl is a widespread scripting language that's regarded as one of the most practical languages on the web. It is feature-rich and it is used to set up various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the market is the support for modules - sets of commands for a certain job that can be included in a script just by calling them which means that you can write just a single line in your script to get a whole module executed, rather than having the entire program code that is already included in the module anyway. As Perl can be used with numerous other languages and it features a lot of options depending on what a particular application can do, it's employed by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.
