Perl is a well-liked web-oriented programming language, which is used to make CGI scripts along with a variety of applications. It is very convenient for the reason that you do not have to create the very same code repeatedly in order to have some process executed more than once, but you are able to use modules. They are pre-defined subroutines or groups of activities which can be called and executed within a script. That is to say, you are able to include only a reference to a certain module in your program code rather than using the whole module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it will be executed a lot faster, not mentioning that it will be easier to maintain and modify. In case you wish to employ a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it'll probably need certain modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Hosting
When you purchase one of the Linux hosting that we offer, you will have access to a huge library of more than 3400 Perl modules that are already set up on our cloud server platform. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to go to the Server Information section where you could check the full list. Some of them are more common than others, but we have such a large selection because we're aware that if you employ an app from some third-party site, it could have specific requirements as to what modules have to be present on the server or it may not work properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are among the modules that you will be able to access and employ on your sites.
