Perl is a popular computer language, that is employed to create various web applications and CGI scripts. Lots of programmers believe that it is one of the most effective languages available since it supports the usage of modules - small parts of code with pre-defined subroutines that are designed to perform a certain task. The modules can save you lots of time and they can contribute to the quick loading speed of your websites as you can integrate just a single line of code to call a given module instead of using all the code for the process in your script. Perl is a universal programming language primarily used for scripts, but it has been used to generate many popular pieces of web software as well, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also employed on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many more.

Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval.
