Perl is a widely used scripting language that is regarded as one of the most useful languages in the online world. It is feature-rich and it is used to generate various web-based applications and CGI scripts. What differentiates Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is its support for modules - groups of commands for a certain job which can be integrated into a script just by calling them which means that you're able to write just a single line within your script to have an entire module executed, rather than having the entire code that's already a part of the module anyway. As Perl supports numerous other programming languages and it provides a lot of options based on what a specific app can do, it is used by many renowned companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

This way, you will be able to build a dynamic website and provide hundreds of different characteristics to your visitors.
