Perl is a widespread web-oriented programming language, that is designed to set up CGI scripts as well as many different apps. It's really practical as you don't need to generate the same code time and again so as to get some task executed a couple of times, instead you will be able to use modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of tasks that can be called and executed inside a script. That is to say, you are able to add just a reference to a specific module in your code rather than using the whole module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, thus it shall be executed quicker, not mentioning that it will be much easier to maintain or modify. When you'd like to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it will probably need particular modules to be present on the web hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Hosting
All of our Linux cloud hosting include over 3400 Perl modules that you'll be able to use as a 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 capabilities you are able to add to your sites. A few examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many, many more. The full list is available in the Server Information section of our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, that is provided with all the shared accounts. In the same location, you will see the Perl version that we have as well as the path to the modules that you'll have to use within your scripts in order to call a specific module from the library.
