in reply to Installing CPAN modules without using 'ppm'

You can find the archives for ActiveState modules from their repository, on their website here. You download the modules that you need from here.

All the files are in a ZIP format. Unzip the file and the installation instructions are in the README file.

    Thanks for the pointer.
    I am now building myself (I hope) a local 'ppm' repository.
    Having downloaded one ZIP file and unzipped it I see that I get a 'ppd' file in my top directory plus a '.tar.gz' file in a subdirectory.
    The README tells me I just have to run 'ppm' in the top directory.
    Logic (an uncertain tool) suggests that if I download all the ZIP files to a directory, unzip them all then delete the zip files (or unzip to a different target directory) I should then have a local 'ppm' repository.
    We shall see.
    Now wondering why there isn't a download of 'all modules'; perhaps I just haven't found it yet.
    Could there be a 'ppm::mini' to match 'CPAN::mini'?

    Thanks for all the help so far

      yes iam having same problem while installing .ihave created local repo +sitory .but i downloaded from http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/x86/M +ath-Pari.tar.gz but i could find any ppd please tell where i can download find the Math::Pari
        Veeruch,

        if you look at the top of the topic you will find a link to the ActiveState FTP repository.
        From there you get a ZIP file which contains both the 'ppd' file and the 'tar.gz' file.
        Unzip this, then use 'ppm' to install.

        HTH
