Perl is an efficient programming language that's widely used for making CGI scripts along with various kinds of web-based apps. Among its main pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are designed to execute a variety of tasks and to increase the efficiency of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of program code. In other words, if five tasks need to be performed, you can employ five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules rather than adding a couple of hundred lines used to set up the actual modules in your script. Perl is very useful and it may be used for a number of purposes, so many companies have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is ordinarily used along with other languages for instance PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Website Hosting
In case you obtain a Linux website hosting package from our company, you will be able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem since we have a large number of modules present on the cloud platform where the shared accounts are set up. With each package, you will be given access to over 3000 modules that you can use in your scripts and you will find a full list inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel as well as the path that you need to use so as to gain access to them. In case you use any kind of script which you've downloaded from a third-party website, you can be sure that it'll run perfectly no matter what modules it requires for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a given time interval. In case your web hosting package doesn't feature cron jobs, you will be able to include this feature with just a few clicks in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
