Perl is a popular scripting language that is used to create various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the characteristics which distinguish it from alternative programming languages is the usage of modules - batches of Perl code which complete predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to generating custom program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you will be able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular job and use just a couple of lines of program code. In consequence, your script shall be executed faster because it'll be smaller. Employing modules will also make a script easier to edit as you will need to search through much less program code. If you'd like to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the required modules are present on your server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Web Hosting
When you get one of the Linux shared web hosting packages that we offer, you will receive access to a huge library of more than 3400 Perl modules which are already installed on our cloud server platform. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Server Information area where you can easily see the complete list. Some of them are more common than others, however we have such a large number since we're aware that when you use an app from a third-party site, it may have specific requirements as to what modules have to be present on the server or it may not work efficiently. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are among the modules that you are able to access and use on your sites.
