Perl is an excellent programming language which is widely used for creating CGI scripts and also various kinds of web-based applications. Among its key advantages is that it supports modules - ready-made batches of code that are designed to do a variety of tasks and to extend the effectiveness of a given script without slowing it with unnecessary lines of code. In other words, in the event that five jobs should be executed, you can employ five lines of program code in order to call each one of the modules rather than including a couple of hundred lines used to set up the actual modules within your script. Perl is very practical and it may be used for multiple purposes, that's why a wide range of corporations have implemented it in their web products or on their resource-demanding websites - cPanel, IMDB, Craigslist, BugZilla, BBC and many more. It's often used along with other programming languages for instance PHP or Python.

A full list can be found in the Control Panel and when you want to use any module, you simply have to include the path to our module library in your script. When third-party scripts which you want to include in your website demand a particular module, for instance, you do not have to worry if they will run properly or not.
