Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, that's employed to set up CGI scripts along with many different applications. It's very convenient since you don't need to produce the same program code repeatedly so that you can get some action executed a couple of times, but you'll be able to use modules. These are pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed inside a script. This means that, you will be able to include only a reference to a certain module inside your program code as an alternative to using the whole module code over and over again. This way, your script will be shorter, thus it will be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it'll be easier to maintain and / or modify. If you'd like to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than creating your own, it'll probably need specific modules to be present on the hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Web Hosting
When you purchase one of the web hosting that we offer, you'll receive access to a huge library of more than 3400 Perl modules that are already set up on our cloud server platform. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Server Information area where you can check the full list. Part of them are more popular than others, but we have such a large selection since we realize that when you use an app from a third-party website, it could have certain prerequisites as to what modules need to be installed on the server or it will not function properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you're able to access and employ on your websites.
