Perl is an excellent programming language that is widely used for generating CGI scripts as well as a variety of web-based apps. One of its main pros is that it works with modules - ready-made batches of program code that are employed to perform various tasks and to increase the effectiveness of a given script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of code. In other words, in the event that five jobs have to be performed, you'll be able to use five lines of code to call each one of the modules instead of including a large number of lines used to generate the actual modules in your script. Perl is very useful and it may be used for many different purposes, so a number of companies have integrated it in their web products or on their high-traffic websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is commonly used with other programming languages for example PHP or Python.

Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use CGI scripts and applications created in Perl with all of our Linux cloud hosting as we have a rich library more than 3000 modules present on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to ensure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a ready-made script are there any time you need them. You're able to run a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually from your site, or automatically via a cron job which will run a particular file regularly. If the package which you have ordered doesn't come with cron jobs included, you're able to include as many as you want from the Upgrades menu inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You also need to make sure that the script file is provided with the right executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you are able to build a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
