Perl is a preferred scripting language that's employed to build various web-oriented applications, such as CGI scripts. One of the attributes which distinguish it from various other languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl program code that perform predefined jobs and they are widely accepted. Basically, instead of creating tailor-made code to perform something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of code inside your script, you'll be able to "call" some module which is already available for this particular job and use only several lines of program code. Therefore, your script will be executed more rapidly as it'll be much smaller. Employing modules will additionally make the script much easier to edit because you'll need to search through a smaller amount of program code. If you intend to use Perl on your website, you need to make sure that the required modules are present on your server.

A complete list is available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to control the semi-dedicated server accounts.
