Perl is a widespread programming language and among its main pros is that it supports the so-called modules - short bits of program code which contain subroutines and perform multiple tasks. The beneficial side of employing modules is the fact that you do not need to write custom-made code or add the entire code for a particular task each and every time it needs to be performed. Instead, you can include only a single line in your Perl script that calls a certain module, that consequently will perform the needed action. Not only will this result in shorter and more optimized scripts, but it will allow you to make changes quicker and easier. In case you aren't a programmer, yet you'd like to work with a Perl application that you've found on the Internet, for example, it is very likely that the app will need some modules to be already installed on your hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Web Hosting
All of our shared web hosting include over 3400 Perl modules which you can use as part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They contain both popular and less popular ones, so as to provide you with a choice with regard to what functionality you are able to add to your sites. A couple of examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many others. A full list is available in the Server Information section of our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that is featured with all shared accounts. In the same place, you'll see the Perl version which we have and the path to the modules that you will have to use within your scripts to call a certain module from the library.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans offer a massive collection of Perl modules that you can use with your scripts. That way, even when you need to use a program which you've found online from another internet site, you can rest assured that it shall work correctly as no matter what modules it may possibly require, we will have them. Our selection provides over 3400 modules including DBD::mysql, URI, LWP, XML::Parser and much more - many of them are widely used while others not so much. We keep such a large number to be on the safe side and to ensure that any script shall work on our machines even if some module that it needs is used rarely. The entire list of modules that can be used can be found in the Hepsia web hosting CP that comes with the semi-dedicated accounts.
