Perl is a well-known scripting language that's regarded as one of the most practical programming languages in the online world. It's feature-rich and it's used to set up a number of web-based apps and CGI scripts. What distinguishes Perl from most of the alternative languages on the web is its support for modules - groups of commands for a certain task which can be included in a script by simply calling them which means that you're able to write just a single line in your script to get a whole module executed, instead of having the whole program code that's already a part of the module anyway. Because Perl can be used with numerous other languages and it comes with a lot of options based on what a specific app can do, it's employed by a number of famous companies - the BBC, Craigslist, The Internet Movie Database (IMDB), cPanel, and so on.

More than 3000 Perl modules are available on our servers and you'll be able to use all of them with your scripts. A full list is available in the Control Panel and if you'd like to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script.
