Perl stands for Practical Extraction and Reporting Language.

Perl is a general-purpose programming language invented in 1987 by Larry Wall. With over one million users worldwide, it has become the language of choice for World Wide Web development, text processing, Internet services, mail filtering, graphical programming, systems administration, and every other task requiring portable and easily-developed solutions.

Perl's elaborate support for regular expression matching and substitution has made it the language of choice for tasks involving string manipulation, whether for text or binary data. It is particularly popular for writing CGI scripts, which is what I use it for :)

Well in lamen terms, Perl is just another scripting language that allows you to write and use scripts on your server for a variety of things, like from forums to guestbook, to trackers, etc.
