It sounds promising

Yeah ... except that I don't really want to install multiple modules ;-)
What I'm wanting to do, for Gtk2::WebKit is, firstly, to install the perl-version-specific binary:
<CODEBASE HREF="http://www.sisyphusion.tk/ppm/x86/Gtk2-WebKit-512.tar. +gz" />
But then I also want to install the (32-bit) dlls upon which that module depends - something like:
<CODEBASE HREF="http://www.sisyphusion.tk/ppm/x86/Gtk2-WebKit-dlls.tar +.gz" />
where the latter command downloads and unpacks a blib that has nothing other than various 32-bit win32 dlls in blib/script - and promptly installs those dlls into $Config{sitebin}.

That latter command will be the same for all 32-bit win32 perl versions.

Admittedly, I could just include the contents of that second blib in with the first blib, but then every 32-bit package that I upload to my repo will have the same 24MB of gzipped dlls.
For me, it's the difference between having to upload 24 x 25MB of tarballs, and having to upload 24 x 1MB of tarballs plus 2 x 24MB tarballs (one for each of 32-bit and 64-bit dlls).
And bear in mind that I live in rural Australia where third world class (probably even worse) internet connections are the rule.

Thanks for the reply - and I probably should check your link in case there is something useful there.

I can achieve what I want using a post-install script. I'd prefer not to do it that way (as it's a bit of a kludge in comparison to "CODEBASE HREF") but I'll do it that way if I have to.

Cheers,
Rob
