Perl, or Practical Extraction Recursive Language, has become one of the
most popular server-side scripting languages available today. Perl is used
in a wide variety of applications, and is commonly used for website
applications. Techtrade maintains the latest version of Perl on all
webservers and has installed commonly requested Perl modules.
Through the Personal Control Panel, virtual server clients can install
popular Perl scripts on their account with the click of a few buttons.
Such scripts include unlimited guestbooks, bulletin boards, free-4-all
links, random image and sound scripts, and form mailer programs.
Techtrade maintains more Perl modules that most other webhosting
companies. Perl modules allow you to extend the scripting capabilities of
Perl and do specialized functions with the code. We currently have
installed over 500 Perl modules on each of our webservers.
Techtrade understand the importance of Perl to virtual server
clients. Therefore, we always update Perl to the most stable release when
possible. This allows our clients to take advantage of improvements and
new additions to Perl's capabilities when possible.
