Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you wish to include CGI scripts on your websites or any other Perl-based application for that matter, you will not encounter any kind of problems in case you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you will be able to call each of them by adding the path which you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you've chosen. Any time you download some app from a third-party site, for instance, you can rest assured that you'll be able to use it no matter what modules it requires to function. Given that your .pl files have the appropriate UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you can choose whether a given script will be run manually by a visitor doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. With the second option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day depending on your preference.
