Perl is a popular programming language and among its key advantages is that it works with the so-called modules - short bits of program code which include subroutines and do different tasks. The handy side of employing modules is that you do not need to write custom program code or add the entire code for a certain task whenever it has to be executed. Instead, you will be able to include just a single line in your Perl script which calls a given module, that in turn will perform the needed task. Not only will this lead to shorter and enhanced scripts, but it'll also allow you to make modifications quicker and much easier. If you aren't a programmer, yet you would like to start using a Perl application which you've found on the Internet, for example, it is very likely that the application will require some modules to be already installed on your hosting server.

A few examples are Apache::SOAP, CGI::Session, GD, Image::Magick, URI, LWP and many, many more. The whole list can be found in the Server Information section of our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which is featured with all the shared accounts. In the same location, you'll see the Perl version which we have along with the path to the modules that you'll need to use within your scripts so as to call a specific module from our library.
