Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, which is used to create CGI scripts and also many different applications. It is really practical since you don't have to generate the very same code over and over again to get some task executed more than once, but you're able to employ modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or groups of tasks that can be called and executed inside a script. In other words, you will be able to add only a reference to a specific module within your program code instead of using the entire module code over and over again. In this way, your script will be shorter, thus it'll be executed more rapidly, not mentioning that it'll be a lot easier to maintain or modify. When you want to take advantage of a third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to creating your own, it'll most likely need particular modules to be pre-installed on the web hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Website Hosting
Our Linux website hosting come with over 3400 Perl modules that you're able to take advantage of as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based apps. They contain both widely used and less popular ones, to give you different options with regard to what features you will be able to add to your websites. A couple of examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. The full list can be found in the Server Information section of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the shared accounts. In the same place, you'll find the Perl version that we have as well as the path to the modules that you'll need to use within your scripts so as to call a certain module from our library.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every single semi-dedicated server that we offer allows you to employ any type of Perl-based web application that you'd like, no matter if you have made it yourself or if you've downloaded it from some third-party website. In either case, it'll work perfectly whatever the modules it needs since we have a rich library that consists of more than 3400 different modules. A full list is accessible in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that's used to control the semi-dedicated server accounts. In addition to the list, you can also find the directory path to the modules, in order to know what you should add in your scripts in order for them to link to these modules. Examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we offer such a multitude of modules to ensure that any script will run in spite of its requirements.
