Perl is a very popular scripting language that is used to build various web-oriented applications, including CGI scripts. One of the options that differentiate it from various other programming languages is the employment of modules - batches of Perl code which execute predefined jobs and they are commonly accepted. Basically, instead of generating tailor-made program code to make something or pasting tens and hundreds of lines of program code inside your script, you are able to "call" a module that already exists for this specific process and use only a couple of lines of code. Therefore, your script will be executed much more rapidly because it will be smaller. Using modules will also make a script easier to modify considering that you will have to go through much less program code. If you wish to use Perl on your site, you need to make sure that the needed modules can be found on the server.

We acknowledge the fact that some third-party programs might need modules which aren't really popular so as to function efficiently, hence the large selection which we have installed on our end. URI, LWP, DBD::mysql and Image::Magick are amongst the modules which you shall be able to use with your Perl apps regardless of the package deal you opt for.
