Perl is a very popular scripting language that is used to make different web-oriented apps, including CGI scripts. One of the attributes that distinguish it from other languages is the use of modules - parts of Perl program code which complete predefined jobs and they're commonly accepted. In simple terms, as an alternative to creating tailor-made code to do something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code in the script, you're able to "call" a module which is already available for this particular job and use just several lines of code. Thus, your script will be executed much more quickly since it will be smaller. Using modules will also make a script simpler to change because you will need to go through much less code. If you want to use Perl on your site, you should make sure that the required modules are present on your server.

Over 3400 Perl Modules in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans offer a huge variety of Perl modules which you can use with your scripts. This way, even when you would like to use an app which you have discovered online from another site, you can be positive that it will work correctly since no matter what modules it could possibly need, we'll have them. Our collection consists of more than 3400 modules like DBD::mysql, URI, LWP, XML::Parser and many more - many of them are commonly used while others not so much. We keep such a large amount to be on the safe side and to make certain that any script will run on our machines even if some module which it requires is used very rarely. The entire list of modules that can be used is available within the Hepsia website hosting CP provided with the semi-dedicated accounts.
