Perl is a well-known scripting language which is used to create various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the features that differentiate it from many other languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code that perform predefined tasks and they're commonly accepted. Basically, rather than generating custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you can "call" some module which is already available for this specific job and use just a couple of lines of code. In consequence, your script shall be executed quicker because it will be smaller. Employing modules will also make the script easier to change since you'll need to browse through a smaller amount of code. In case you would like to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the mandatory modules are available on the server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Hosting
If you buy one of the Linux cloud hosting that we supply, you'll have access to a rich library of more than 3400 Perl modules which are already set up on our cloud server platform. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to visit the Server Information section where you can easily see the entire list. Part of them are more common than others, but we offer such a large number since we're aware that if you use an application from some third-party site, it may have specific requirements as to what kind of modules need to be installed on the server or it might not function properly. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are on the list of modules that you're able to access and use on your sites.
