Perl is an effective programming language that's commonly used for setting up CGI scripts and also different web-based apps. Among its main pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to perform various tasks and to enhance the effectiveness of a certain script without slowing it with unneeded lines of program code. To put it simply, in the event that five processess should be executed, you're able to use five lines of code in order to call each of the modules instead of including a few hundred lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is very handy and it may be used for a number of purposes, so a lot of companies have included it in their web products or on their resource-demanding sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is generally used in addition to other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

The complete list can be found in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library within your script. When third-party scripts that you want to include in your site require a certain module, for instance, you do not need to worry if they will run effectively or not. In this way, you are able to create a dynamic website and supply plenty of characteristics to your visitors.
