Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, that is used to set up CGI scripts and many different applications. It is very handy owing to the fact that you don't have to generate the very same program code over and over so that you can get some action executed a couple of times, instead you'll be able to work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of tasks that can be called and executed in a script. In other words, you're able to include only a reference to a certain module in your program code instead of using the entire module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it will be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain and / or modify. When you would like to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of writing your own, it will most likely need specific modules to be present on the 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 receive access to a rich library of more than 3400 Perl modules which are already installed on our cloud server platform. When you sign in to the 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, yet we have such a large number since we are aware that when you use an application from some third-party site, it may have specific requirements as to what modules need to be installed on the server or it will not function appropriately. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you can access and employ on your websites.
