Perl is a well-liked scripting language which is regarded as being one of the most useful programming languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it's used to set up various web-based apps and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the other languages on the market is its support for modules - groups of commands for a particular process which can be included in a script by simply calling them which means that you'll be able to write a single line in your script to have a module executed, instead of having the entire program code which is already included in the module anyway. Because Perl supports numerous other programming languages and it provides a lot of functions based on what a specific application can do, it's used by numerous renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, etcetera.
