Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, that is designed to set up CGI scripts along with a variety of apps. It is really useful as you don't need to write the same code repeatedly so as to have some process executed several times, but you will be able to employ modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of tasks that can be called and executed inside a script. This means that, you will be able to include only a reference to a given module in your code rather than using the whole module code time and time again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it shall be executed a lot quicker, not mentioning that it'll be much easier to maintain and modify. When you want to employ some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it will probably need particular modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Website Hosting
If you acquire one of the Linux website hosting that we provide, you'll receive access to a huge library of over 3400 Perl modules which are already installed on our cloud server platform. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to go to the Server Information section where you can easily see the complete list. Some of them are more common than others, but we have such a large number since we realize that when you use an application from some third-party website, it could have specific requirements as to what kind of modules should be available on the server or it may not function properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you'll be able to access and use on your sites.
