Perl is a widely used programming language and one of its main advantages is that it supports the so-called modules - short bits of program code which include subroutines and do various tasks. The useful side of using modules is that you don't need to write custom code or include the entire code for a particular action each and every time it should be executed. Instead, you are able to add only one line in your Perl script which calls a specific module, which consequently will execute the needed action. Not only will this give you shorter and more optimized scripts, but it will enable you to make adjustments a lot quicker and easier. If you aren't a programmer, yet you'd like to start using a Perl application which you've found online, for instance, it's very likely that the app will require some modules to be already installed on your website hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Website Hosting
If you buy one of the shared website hosting plans that we offer, you'll receive access to a rich library of over 3400 Perl modules that are already set up on our cloud server platform. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to visit the Server Information area where you could see the full list. Part of them are more common than others, yet we have such a large number as we're aware that in case you employ an application from a third-party site, it may have specific prerequisites as to what modules should be available on the server or it might not function efficiently. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are among the modules that you will be able to access and take advantage of on your sites.
