Perl is a very popular scripting language which is that is used to create different web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the attributes which distinguish it from various other programming languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl code that do predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. In simple terms, instead of writing tailor-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you're able to "call" some module which already exists for this specific job and use just several lines of program code. Thus, your script will be executed more rapidly since it is much smaller. Employing modules will, in addition make your script simpler to modify considering that you will have to search through much less program code. If you'd like to use Perl on your website, you should make sure that the required modules are available on your server.

The complete list can be found in the Server Information section of our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is provided with all the shared accounts. In the same place, you can find the Perl version which we have along with the path to the modules that you'll have to use within your scripts so as to call a certain module from the library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of our Linux semi-dedicated servers come with a massive collection of Perl modules which you may use with your scripts. That way, even if you would like to use a program that you have found online from another website, you can be certain that it'll work effectively because regardless what modules it may require, we'll have them. Our collection provides more than 3400 modules including DBD::mysql, URI, LWP, XML::Parser and a lot more - some of them are widely used while others not so much. We keep such a significant number to be on the safe side and to make certain that any script will run on our servers even if some module it requires is used rarely. The complete list of modules that you can use can be found in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel provided with the semi-dedicated accounts.
