Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, that's used to create CGI scripts as well as a variety of applications. It is very convenient considering that you do not need to produce the same program code again and again so that you can get some action executed more than once, but you're able to work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities which can be called and executed in a script. That is to say, you're able to include only a reference to a certain module inside your code rather than using the entire module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it'll be executed faster, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain or modify. In case you'd like to use 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 hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Website Hosting
When you buy one of the Linux cloud website hosting that we offer, you will have access to a large library of more than 3400 Perl modules that are already installed on our cloud server platform. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to go to the Server Information area where you can check the complete list. Part of them are more common than others, yet we offer such a large number because we are aware that when you use an app from a third-party website, it could have specific prerequisites as to what kind of modules should be present on the server or it will not function appropriately. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you're able to access and use on your sites.
