Perl is an excellent programming language that is commonly used for generating CGI scripts along with various web-based apps. One of its main pros is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of program code which are designed to perform a variety of tasks and to extend the effectiveness of a certain script without clogging it with unnecessary lines of program code. This means that, if five jobs have to be executed, you're able to use five lines of code in order to call each one of the modules instead of including a few hundred lines used to create the actual modules in your script. Perl is very convenient and it may be used for many different purposes, so a number of companies have implemented it in their web products or on their high-traffic sites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It is often used in addition to other languages such as PHP or Python.
Perl Scripting in Cloud Hosting
You can use CGI scripts and apps created in Perl with any of our cloud hosting because we have a rich library more than 3000 modules on our custom cloud hosting platform so as to ensure that all of the dependencies for a tailor-made or a pre-made script will be there when you need them. You're able to execute a .pl file in two separate ways - either manually via your website, or automatically using a cron job which will run a particular file on regular intervals. In the event that the package which you've obtained does not come with cron jobs included, you're able to add as many as you need from the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Also, you need to ensure that the script file is provided with the needed executable permissions. When you use our shared packages, you can create a website with as many functions and features as you'd like.
