Perl is a widespread programming language and one of its main advantages is the fact that it supports the so-called modules - short pieces of code that include subroutines and do different tasks. The beneficial side of employing modules is the fact that you do not need to create custom program code or add the entire code for a specific task each time it needs to be executed. Alternatively, you will be able to include only a single line in your Perl script which calls a particular module, that consequently will execute the necessary task. Not only will this result in shorter and enhanced scripts, but it'll also enable you to make adjustments faster and much easier. In case you are not a programmer, yet you'd like to use a Perl application which you've found on the Internet, for instance, it is likely that the application will require certain modules to be already set up on your hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Web Hosting
All of our Linux shared web hosting packages come with more than 3400 Perl modules which you will be able to take advantage of as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They contain both popular and less popular ones, to give you a choice in terms of what functionality you'll be able to add to your sites. Some examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many others. The full list is available in the Server Information area of our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is provided with all the shared accounts. In the same place, you can find the Perl version that we have as well as the path to the modules that you'll need to use inside your scripts so as to call a particular module from our library.
