 It depends on who you're trying to market yourself/your company to.

Some companies are specifically looking for a Perl developer, therefore
it's a good idea to use the word "Perl" in the title.

Other companies might not give a crap about what their
product/website/whatever is coded in, so you'd perhaps use the title e.g.
Web Developer or Software Application Developer.
