Perl is a well-known scripting language that's that is used to build different web-oriented applications, which includes CGI scripts. One of the options that distinguish it from various other languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl program code which execute predefined tasks and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, rather than writing custom code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you'll be able to "call" some module that is already available for this particular process and use just a few lines of code. This way, your script shall be executed a lot quicker since it'll be smaller. Using modules will also make a script much easier to change because you will have to search through much less program code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the required modules are present on your server.

The complete list can be found in the Server Information section of our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, that is provided with all of the shared accounts. In the same place, you will find 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 particular module from the library.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers

We recognize the fact that some third-party apps might require modules that aren't quite popular to function correctly, hence the large amount we've installed on our end. URI, LWP, DBD::mysql and Image::Magick are among the modules that you'll be able to use with your Perl apps no matter the package you choose.
