Perl is an efficient programming language which is regularly used for creating CGI scripts along with various web-based apps. One of its major pros is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code which are used to do numerous tasks and to enhance the functionality of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. This means that, if five jobs should be performed, you can employ five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules instead of including a large number of lines used to generate the actual modules within your script. Perl is very convenient and it can be used for numerous purposes, so a lot of corporations have integrated it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is generally used in addition to other languages for instance PHP or Python.

With each plan, you will be provided with access to over 3000 modules that you can employ in your scripts and you will find the complete list within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel together with the path that you should use to get access to them. When you use any script that you've downloaded from a third-party site, you can rest assured that it will run properly no matter what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to set up a cron job to do this automatically at a certain time interval. If your web hosting package does not come with cron jobs, you will be able to include this option with a few clicks within the Upgrades area of the Control Panel.
