Perl is a very popular web-oriented computer programming language, that's employed to create CGI scripts as well as many different applications. It's very handy due to the fact that you do not need to write the very same program code again and again so that you can get some task executed a couple of times, but you're able to work with modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of functions that can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you're able to include only a reference to a specific module within your program code as an alternative to using the entire module code again and again. In this way, your script will be shorter, therefore it'll be executed much faster, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain or modify. If you would like to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it'll most likely need certain modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Website Hosting
Our Linux website hosting packages include over 3400 Perl modules which you'll be able to use as part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They contain both widespread and less popular ones, to provide you with different options in terms of what functionality you will be able to add to your websites. Several examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many, many more. The complete list accessible in the Server Information area of our custom-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. In the same place, you'll see the Perl version which we have and the path to the modules that you'll have to use inside your scripts so as to call a certain module from our library.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages offer a big collection of Perl modules which you could use with your scripts. Thus, even when you need to use a program that you have found online from a different website, you can be sure that it will work correctly because regardless of what modules it may require, we'll have them. Our library provides more than 3400 modules like DBD::mysql, URI, LWP, XML::Parser and many more - some of them are widely used while others not so much. We keep such a significant number to be on the safe side and to be certain that any script shall work on our machines even if some module which it requires is used extremely rarely. The entire list of modules which you can use is available inside the Hepsia web hosting CP that comes with the semi-dedicated accounts.
