Perl is a very popular scripting language that is employed to build different web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that distinguish it from other languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code that execute predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. Basically, instead of generating custom program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you will be able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific job and use only a couple of lines of program code. Due to this fact, your script will be executed much more rapidly since it is smaller. Using modules will also make a script much easier to modify considering that you will have to search through much less code. If you wish to use Perl on your website, you have to ensure that the required modules can be found on the server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Website Hosting

If you purchase one of the Linux website hosting that we provide, you will have access to a rich 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're able to visit the Server Information section where you could check the complete list. Some of them are more popular than others, but we offer such a large number since we're aware that if you use an application from some third-party site, it could have specific requirements as to what kind of modules have to be set up on the server or it will not function appropriately. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are among the modules that you'll be able to access and use on your websites.
