Perl is a very popular scripting language that is which is used to build various web-oriented apps, which includes CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that distinguish it from other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code which do predefined tasks and they are commonly accepted. In simple terms, instead of writing tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you can "call" a module that already exists for this specific process and use just a few lines of code. In consequence, your script will be executed a lot quicker since it is smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script simpler to edit since you'll need to search through a smaller amount of code. If you'd like to use Perl on your website, you should ensure that the mandatory modules can be found on your server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated plans feature a massive variety of Perl modules which you may use with your scripts. That way, even when you would like to use an application that you have discovered online from another site, you can rest assured that it'll work correctly because regardless of what modules it could possibly need, we'll have them. Our library consists of more than 3400 modules including DBD::mysql, URI, LWP, XML::Parser and a lot more - some of them are widely used and others not so much. We keep such a large number to be on the safe side and to ensure that any script will run on our web servers even if some module which it requires is used rarely. The complete list of modules which you can use can be found in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that comes with the semi-dedicated accounts.
