in reply to A Guide to Installing Modules
I have activestate on winXP.
I have installed/updated modules using ppm without a hitch.
I want to try Win32::Rase but have not been able to find it with ppm so I (nervously) tried the cpan.pm method you describe.
The 'install' command doesn't find it but the 'i' command seems to know about it.
Any advice please? Thanks in advance.
C:\Perl>perl -MCPAN -e "shell"
Terminal does not support AddHistory.
cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.7601)
ReadLine support available (try 'install Bundle::CPAN')
cpan> install Win32::Rase
CPAN: Storable loaded ok
Going to read \.cpan\Metadata
