Perl is a widely used language, that is employed to make various web apps and CGI scripts. A lot of programmers believe that it is among the most efficient programming languages these days since it supports the usage of modules - small bits of code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to execute a particular task. The modules will save you a lot of time and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites as you can add just one line of program code to call a certain module rather than using all of the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal language generally used for scripts, but it's been used to generate lots of popular pieces of web software too, like cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It's also used on high-traffic sites which includes IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.
