Perl is a preferred scripting language that is used to make different web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the characteristics that distinguish it from other programming languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl code that perform predefined tasks and they are universally accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating custom code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code in your script, you'll be able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular task and use only a few lines of program code. Due to this, your script shall be executed much more quickly as it will be smaller. Using modules will additionally make the script easier to modify as you'll have to go through much less program code. If you intend to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the necessary modules are present on the server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Hosting
More than 3400 Perl modules will be accessible when you purchase any of our Linux cloud packages. You'll be able to use as many as you need and we have made sure that we've got all the well-known ones, as well as a lot more that are not used that much, but may be a prerequisite for a third-party web app that you would like to use or for a custom script in order to work efficiently. LWP, URI, GD, CGI::Session and Image::Magick are only a few instances of the modules you will be able to access. You'll be able to see the whole list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you need to set in your scripts, so that they can use the module library. With our shared plans, you will be able to work with any type of Perl-based script without any restrictions.
