Perl is a very popular scripting language that is used to build different web-oriented apps, such as CGI scripts. Among the characteristics which differentiate it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code that complete predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to writing custom program code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you are able to "call" some module which already exists for this particular process and use only a few lines of program code. Due to this fact, your script will be executed a lot quicker as it will be much smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script simpler to modify as you'll have to browse through a smaller amount of program code. If you wish to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the needed modules are available on your server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting

that we supply, you will have access to a large library of over 3400 Perl modules which are already set up on our cloud server platform. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Server Information section where you can see the complete list. Part of them are more common than others, however we offer such a large selection since we realize that when you use an application from a third-party site, it may have specific prerequisites as to what modules have to be installed on the server or it might not function properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you can access and use on your websites.
