Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, that's designed to make CGI scripts and also a variety of apps. It is very useful due to the fact that you don't need to submit the very same code time and time again so as to have some task executed several times, but you can employ modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of operations that can be called and executed inside a script. This means that, you will be able to add only a reference to a given module within your code instead of using the entire module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, which means that it will be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain or modify. When you want to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script instead of creating your own, it'll most likely need specific modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.

Our shared web hosting plans feature more than 3400 Perl modules that you can work with as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They contain both popular and less popular ones, so as to supply you with different options in terms of what features you will be able to add to your websites. A couple of examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. The whole list can be found in the Server Information area of our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with all of the shared accounts. In the same location, you will see the Perl version which we have and the path to the modules that you will have to use in your scripts so as to call a given module from our library.
