Perl is a well-liked scripting language that is regarded as one of the most useful languages on the Internet. It is feature-rich and it's used to create a number of web-based applications and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages out there is its compatibility with modules - groups of commands for a particular task that can be integrated into a script by calling them which means that you'll be able to write just one line within your script to get a module executed, instead of having the entire program code which is already a part of the module anyway. Since Perl is compatible with numerous other programming languages and it features a lot of options depending on what a particular application can do, it is employed by numerous famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and many others.
