Perl is a well-known scripting language that is designed to create different web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. Among the characteristics that differentiate it from alternative languages is the use of modules - batches of Perl program code that execute predefined jobs and they're widely accepted. Basically, as an alternative to creating custom program code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you are able to "call" some module which already exists for this particular job and use just several lines of program code. Therefore, your script shall be executed a lot quicker as it'll be smaller. Employing modules will also make your script easier to change due to the fact that you'll need to search through much less program code. If you would like to use Perl on your site, you have to ensure that the mandatory modules are available on the server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Shared Hosting

Some of them are more common than others, but we have such a large selection as we realize that in case you use an application from some third-party site, it may have specific prerequisites as to what modules need to be set up on the server or it will not work efficiently. XML::Parser, URI, LWP and DBD::mysql are some of the modules that you'll be able to access and employ on your websites.
