Perl is a popular programming language and among its main pros is that it supports the so-called modules - short pieces of code which contain subroutines and do a number of tasks. The convenient side of employing modules is that you will not need to write custom program code or include the whole code for a particular task every time it should be executed. Instead, you can include just a single line in your Perl script that calls a certain module, that in turn will execute the needed task. Not only will this give you shorter and optimized scripts, but it will also help you make changes faster and easier. In case you aren't a programmer, but you'd like to employ a Perl app that you've discovered online, for instance, it is likely that the app will need certain modules to be already set up on the website hosting server.
Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With more than 3400 Perl modules pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, you're able to run virtually any script application written in this programming language without a problem whatever the semi-dedicated server
plan that you choose. The abovementioned applies for both pre-made apps which you find online and for custom-made ones which you develop. We have such a multitude of modules for a couple of reasons - first, to offer you a choice in respect to what kind of functions you'll be able to add to your applications and sites and secondly, to ensure that in case you'd like to use a ready script, it'll run appropriately whatever the modules it requires. For this reason, some of the modules in our library are quite popular while others are employed very rarely. You will see a list of all the modules inside your hosting Control Panel together with the access path that your scripts will need in order to use these modules.
