Perl is a very popular web-oriented programming language, that's designed to create CGI scripts along with a variety of applications. It's really practical due to the fact that you don't have to create the very same code over and over so that you can get some process executed several times, instead you can work with modules. They're pre-defined subroutines or sets of activities which can be called and executed within a script. That is to say, you will be able to add just a reference to a given module inside your code as an alternative to using the entire module code again and again. This way, your script will be shorter, therefore it'll be executed faster, not mentioning that it will be much simpler to maintain and / or modify. In case you'd like to take advantage of some third-party ready-made Perl script as an alternative to writing your own, it will probably need specific modules to be pre-installed on the website hosting server.

A full list accessible in the Server Information section of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with all of the shared accounts. In the same place, you'll see the Perl version that we have along with the path to the modules that you will have to use in your scripts to call a specific module from the library.
