Perl is a widely used programming language and among its major advantages is that it works with the so-called modules - short pieces of program code that include subroutines and do numerous tasks. The practical side of working with modules is the fact that you won't have to write custom code or add the whole code for a certain process each time it has to be executed. Instead, you are able to include only one line in your Perl script which calls a certain module, that in turn will perform the necessary task. Not only will this provide you with shorter and more optimized scripts, but it'll also help you make changes quicker and easier. If you are not a programmer, still you'd like to begin using a Perl app that you've found on the worldwide web, for instance, it's likely that the application will need certain modules to be already installed on the web hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting
All of our Linux shared packages come with over 3400 Perl modules which you can work with as a part of your CGI scripts or web-based applications. They include both widespread and less popular ones, so as to provide you with different options with regard to what functions you can add to your sites. A couple of examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many others. The complete list accessible in the Server Information section of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is featured with all the shared accounts. In the same location, you can find the Perl version that we have along with the path to the modules that you will have to use inside your scripts so as to call a certain module from our library.
