Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, that's employed to create CGI scripts as well as a variety of apps. It's very handy as you don't have to submit the same program code over and over again so that you can get some action executed several times, but you'll be able to work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed within a script. This means that, you'll be able to include only a reference to a certain module within your code rather than using the whole module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, which means that it'll be executed much faster, not mentioning that it'll be a lot easier to maintain or modify. When you wish to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of creating your own, it'll most likely need certain modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting
If you obtain one of the Linux hosting that we offer, you will receive access to a rich library of over 3400 Perl modules that are already set up on our cloud server platform. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to visit the Server Information area where you can see the entire list. Part of them are more popular than others, yet we offer such a large number because we're aware that in case you use an application from some third-party website, it may have certain prerequisites as to what kind of modules have to be available on the server or it may not function appropriately. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are among the modules that you can access and take advantage of on your sites.
