Sorry, I shouldn't have linked to it like that.

PPM::UI is part of the ActiveState installation. On my machine, it lives in d:/Perl/site/lib/PPM/

Here's the transcript to demonstrate:

D:\>perl -demo Loading DB routines from version 1.28 Editor support available. Enter h or `h h' for help, or `perldoc perldebug' for more help. main::(-e:1): mo DB<1> use PPM::UI DB<2> p $INC{'PPM/'} d:/Perl/site/lib/PPM/
However, ppm3 doesn't seem to know about PPM::UI -- at least, you can't query PPM::UI, or search it, etc. In fact, I find the search and query functionality oddly designed, as I have to know the distribution name, or work at figuring out the wildcard/logical expression to match it. Maybe I just don't know how to use it.

So other than installing ActiveState, I don't know where to get PPM::UI from. Which means if there's an update, it's either buried in PPM, or it's part of the ActiveState install package (and then you only get the update when you update Perl).
