Perl is a preferred scripting language which is designed to create various web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. Among the attributes that differentiate it from many other languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl code which do predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. Basically, rather than creating custom code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you will be able to "call" a module that already exists for this particular task and use only several lines of code. Therefore, your script will be executed a lot faster as it is smaller. Using modules will also make the script easier to modify because you'll need to go through much less program code. In case you intend to use Perl on your site, you have to make sure that the mandatory modules are available on the server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Cloud Hosting
When you get one of the cloud hosting that we offer, you'll have access to a rich library of more than 3400 Perl modules that are already installed on our cloud server platform. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to go to the Server Information area where you can easily check the entire list. Part of them are more common than others, yet we offer such a large number since we are aware that when you use an application from a third-party website, it could have certain prerequisites as to what kind of modules should be available on the server or it might not function efficiently. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are among the modules that you'll be able to access and take advantage of on your sites.
