Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, that's used to set up CGI scripts as well as many different apps. It is very convenient owing to the fact that you don't need to produce the same code time and time again to have some action executed a couple of times, but you will be able to employ modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of tasks which can be called and executed in a script. That is to say, you can add only a reference to a particular module in your program code as an alternative to using the entire module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, which means that it'll be executed faster, not mentioning that it'll be a lot easier to maintain or modify. If you wish to use some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than writing your own, it will probably need particular modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Website Hosting
Our Linux website hosting packages feature more than 3400 Perl modules which you are able to benefit from as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They contain both widely used and less popular ones, in order to offer you a choice regarding what functions you'll be able to add to your websites. A few examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. The whole list can be found in the Server Information area of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, that is provided with all the shared accounts. In the same place, you can find the Perl version which we have along with the path to the modules that you'll need to use within your scripts in order to call a particular module from our library.
