Perl is a popular scripting language which is regarded as one of the most practical languages on the Internet. It's feature-rich and it is used to create various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is the support for modules - sets of commands for a particular task that can be included in a script just by calling them i.e. you're able to write a single line in your script to have an entire module executed, instead of having the whole code that's already included in the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with various other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions depending on what a particular app can do, it is used by a number of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.
