Perl is a popular scripting language that is used to create different web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. Among the features that distinguish it from many other languages is the usage of modules - parts of Perl code that complete predefined jobs and they are universally accepted. Basically, instead of creating custom-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you're able to "call" some module which is already available for this specific job and use just several lines of code. Due to this fact, your script will be executed quicker as it'll be smaller. Employing modules will additionally make your script simpler to edit as you'll need to search through much less code. If you wish to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the needed modules are available on your server.

If you wish to use a Perl-based web app or CGI script, you'll be able to use 3400+ different modules that can be found on our cloud hosting platform and are a part of each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide. You'll be able to see the whole list anytime using your Hepsia Control Panel along with the folder path required for your scripts to access the modules. We acknowledge the fact that some third-party apps might need modules that are not quite popular in order to perform efficiently, hence the big number that we have installed on our end. URI, LWP, DBD::mysql and Image::Magick are amongst the modules which you will be able to use with your Perl apps irrespective of the package deal you select.
