This is a good last resort.
I've found that PPM is superior for Windows installations since it automatically adds a module's HTML documentation to ActivePerl's set of documentation (HTML files). I'm sure that this can be done manually, but I haven't spent the time to figure it out.
Are there instructions available for creating HTML pages from a module's POD and then linking it into ActivePerl's documentation?
Also, what other things does PPM handle that is specific for ActivePerl? I've noticed something about PPM3 registering installed modules with ActiveState.
