Perl is an excellent programming language which is frequently used for setting up CGI scripts and also different web-based applications. One of its main advantages is the fact that it works with modules - ready-made batches of code that are used to perform numerous tasks and to increase the performance of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of code. In other words, when five processess should be performed, you're able to employ five lines of program code in order to call each of the modules rather than including a large number of lines used to create the actual modules within your script. Perl is very practical and it can be used for many different purposes, that's why a wide range of companies have included it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and a lot more. It is often used in addition to other programming languages like PHP or Python.

With each package, you'll be provided with access to more than 3000 modules that you'll be able to use in your scripts and you will find a full list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel as well as the path which you should use so as to access them. Should you use any script which you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it'll run perfectly no matter what modules it needs for that. Any kind of .pl script can be executed manually or you can set up a cron job to do this automatically at a pre-set time interval. If your website hosting package does not feature cron jobs, you are able to add this feature with just a few clicks within the Upgrades section of the Control Panel.
