Perl is a very popular scripting language that is designed to create various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. Among the features which distinguish it from various other languages is the employment of modules - parts of Perl program code which perform predefined tasks and they are widely accepted. Basically, rather than writing custom-made code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you'll be able to "call" some module which is already available for this specific process and use just a few lines of code. Due to this fact, your script will be executed more rapidly since it is smaller. Using modules will additionally make a script simpler to change due to the fact that you'll have to go through a smaller amount of program code. In case you want to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the required modules are present on the server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Web Hosting
All our Linux web hosting
feature over 3400 Perl modules which you'll be able to use as part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They contain both widespread and less popular ones, to provide you with a choice with regard to what capabilities you're able to add to your sites. Several examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. The complete list can be found in the Server Information section of our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, that comes with all the shared accounts. In the same location, you'll see the Perl version that we have as well as the path to the modules that you will need to use in your scripts so as to call a specific module from the library.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server
that we provide allows you to employ any type of Perl-based web app that you would like, regardless if you've made it yourself or if you've downloaded it from a third-party site. Either way, it'll function properly regardless of the modules it needs since we have a rich library that consists of more than 3400 different modules. The complete list can be found in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that's used to manage the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to the list, you can also see the directory path to the modules, in order to know what you need to include in your scripts in order for them to connect to the modules. A few examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we supply such a large number of modules to make sure that any type of script will run in spite of its requirements.
