Perl & Your Hosting Account
About Perl and Perl Hosting
Perl is a free, stable, cross platform programming language. It is used for mission critical projects in the public and private sectors and is widely used to program web applications of all needs. Perl is especially well suited to text processing applications, making it very useful for web development. Using Perl, you can process forms or add material to your website, or create dynamic database-driven web applications. It's also a useful system administration tool.
Perl also has the CPAN (Comprehensive Perl Archive Network) - which contains more than twelve thousand modules written to extend the functionality and usefulness of perl. CPAN allows perl developers to quickly and easily add new functionality to their perl scripts - anything from database access to creation of Excel spreadsheets.
