Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want to include CGI scripts on your sites or some other Perl-based app for that matter, you will not have any problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you will be able to call any of them by including the path that you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. When you download some app from a third-party website, for instance, you can rest assured that you will be able to work with it no matter what modules it requires to function. Given that your .pl files include the proper UNIX permissions to be executable, you can choose whether a certain script will be run manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by setting up a cron job inside your account. With the latter option, your script can be executed every day, hour or minute in accordance with your preference.
