Perl is a widely used programming language and among its key advantages is the fact that it works with the so-called modules - short bits of program code that include subroutines and execute different tasks. The beneficial side of using modules is that you do not need to write custom code or add the whole code for a given process every single time it needs to be executed. Alternatively, you'll be able to include only one line in your Perl script which calls a specific module, which consequently will execute the necessary task. Not only will this give you shorter and more optimized scripts, but it will also allow you to make adjustments faster and much easier. In case you are not a programmer, still you would like to start using a Perl application that you've discovered on the Internet, for example, it's very likely that the application will require specific modules to be already installed on the web hosting server.

They contain both widely used and less popular ones, so as to give you different options with regard to what functions you will be able to add to your websites. A few examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and a lot more. The full list accessible in the Server Information area of our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is provided with all shared accounts. In the same place, you can see the Perl version that we have as well as the path to the modules that you will have to use in your scripts so as to call a particular module from our library.
