Perl is an effective programming language that is frequently used for setting up CGI scripts and also many different web-based applications. Among its main pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are designed to perform a variety of tasks and to enhance the effectiveness of a given script without clogging it with unneeded lines of program code. In other words, in the event that five processess should be performed, you are able to use five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules rather than adding a large number of lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is really practical and it can be used for many different purposes, that's why a wide range of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is commonly used along with other languages such as PHP or Python.

Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. If your web hosting package doesn't include cron jobs, you will be able to include this option with a few clicks in the Upgrades area of your Control Panel.
