Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, that's employed to make CGI scripts as well as a variety of applications. It is really handy because you don't have to generate the same code over and over to have some task executed several times, but you are able to apply modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of tasks that can be called and executed in a script. This means that, you are able to include just a reference to a given module inside your program code as an alternative to using the whole module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it'll be executed faster, not mentioning that it'll be much simpler to maintain and / or modify. If you'd like to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it'll probably need particular modules to be present on the website hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Website Hosting
When you purchase one of the Linux shared website hosting packages that we supply, you'll have access to a rich library of more than 3400 Perl modules which are already installed on our cloud server platform. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to visit the Server Information area where you can see the whole list. Some of them are more popular than others, but we have such a large selection since we are aware that when you use an application from some third-party site, it may have certain requirements as to what kind of modules should be set up on the server or it will not work appropriately. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are among the modules that you'll be able to access and take advantage of on your websites.
