Cygwin and PPM

Dear perl monks I was wondering if anyone has thought of packing cygwin perl modules using PPM?

Or if anyone uses PPM on a platform except active state?

Does anyone have the source code for the PPM server?

I am an avid user of cygwin and perl and I find that some modules are very painfull to compile, so that pain should be reduced, By sharing!

    The PPM source is available on CPAN.

    I've compiled ActivePerl on Linux and used PPM. So it must also be included in the ActicePerl tarballs.

    However, this probably won't help you with pre-compiled binaries. I think that the binaries will only work if they are compiled with the same compiler and libraries as your version of Perl.

      The issue is not with the PPMClient, but with the PPM server itself.

      I cannot seem to find any links for setting up a proper ppm (soap) server

        The Package Name is PPM::SOAPServer

        Here is a doc about it:

        http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Reference/Products/ActivePerl-5.6/site/lib/PPM/SOAPServer.html

        The author is Graham TerMarsch

        gtermars@home.com/grahamt@activestate.com

        but I cannot seem to find any source code on the net!

      John,

      I changed my topic too fast,

      Sorry about that.

      Originally I was talking about cygwin and PPM, then about PPM Soap Server.

      If the PPMs worked fine on cygwin, we could set up PPMs for the cygwin distribution. That would also work with a plain old FTP server.

      Anyone interested?

      Mike UPDATE: Fixed typo
