Perl is a very popular computer language, that is used to create various web apps and CGI scripts. A number of programmers believe that it is among the most effective languages nowadays since it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of program code with pre-defined subroutines that are employed to perform a certain task. The modules can help you save time and effort and they will contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites since you'll be able to include just one line of code to call a given module instead of using all of the program code for the task within your script. Perl is a versatile language normally used for scripts, but it has been used to create a variety of popular pieces of web software too, such as cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic sites for instance IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Executing a .pl file, custom or ready-made, can be achieved in two ways - manually, in case a visitor does a particular action on your site, or automatically, when you create a cron job from your account. In the second case, you are able to select the interval according to what your script will do and how often you would like it to run - once every day, hour, minute, etcetera.
