Perl is a widespread web-oriented computer programming language, that's designed to generate CGI scripts as well as a variety of applications. It is really handy because you don't have to produce the same program code repeatedly so as to get some action executed more than once, instead you will be able to apply modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities which can be called and executed within a script. In other words, you are able to add only a reference to a specific module within your program code rather than using the whole module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, thus it'll be executed a lot quicker, not mentioning that it will be a lot easier to maintain and / or modify. If you would like to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script rather than creating your own, it'll probably need certain modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server that we supply will allow you to work with any kind of Perl-based web application that you wish, no matter if you have created it yourself or if you've downloaded it from a third-party site. Either way, it will run perfectly regardless of the modules it needs because we have a large library which consists of over 3400 different modules. The complete list is accessible in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that's used to take care of the semi-dedicated server accounts. Along with that list, you'll also find the directory path to the modules, so as to know what you should include in your scripts in order for them to connect to the modules. Examples of what we have are URI, DBD::mysql, Image::Magick and LWP and we have such a multitude of modules to ensure that almost any script will be able to run regardless of its requirements.
