Some more websites that would not exist without Perl: HospitalityNet and Bookings. Both are large, context-rich, very fast websites that receive many visitors.

(added later)
Both sites are built with LAMP: Linux, Apache, MySQL and Perl. With Perl all the database queries are handled. All webstyle elements are done in XML with Perl. Perl takes care of logging statistics, glueing programs, form scripts and other scripts.

[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Oh, yeah :-D
