Perl is a popular programming language and one of its key advantages is that it supports the so-called modules - short pieces of program code that include subroutines and execute different tasks. The convenient side of employing modules is that you won't need to create custom program code or add the entire code for a particular task each time it should be executed. Instead, 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 action. Not only will this result in shorter and optimized scripts, but it'll also help you make changes swifter and easier. In case you aren't a programmer, but you'd like to start using a Perl application that you've found on the web, for instance, it's likely that the application will need specific modules to be already installed on the website hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Website Hosting
All of our Linux shared website hosting packages come with over 3400 Perl modules that you can employ as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They contain both popular and less popular ones, so as to provide you with different options in terms of what features you are able to add to your sites. A few examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many others. The complete list is available in the Server Information section of our in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, that is provided with all of the shared accounts. In the same place, you'll find the Perl version which we have along with the path to the modules that you'll have to use inside your scripts in order to call a given module from our library.
