Thanks marto,

Wow, do you have the entire CPAN as PPMs? PPM4 said "Don't know how to unpack ... " the zip file. So I tried it with PPM3 and got:

C:\Documents and Settings\johnday.MERCURY>ppm3 install http://trouchel +le.com/ppm/Data-ICal.ppd error: can't parse <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"? <SOFTPKG NAME="Data-ICal" VERSION="0,13,0,0" <TITLE>Data-ICal</TITLE <ABSTRACT>Generates iCalendar (RFC 2445) calendar files</ABSTRACT <AUTHOR>Jesse Vincent &lt;jesse@bestpractical.com&gt;</AUTHOR <IMPLEMENTATION <DEPENDENCY NAME="Class-ReturnValue" VERSION="0,0,0,0" / <DEPENDENCY NAME="Class-Accessor" VERSION="0,0,0,0" / <DEPENDENCY NAME="MIME-Base64" VERSION="0,0,0,0" / <DEPENDENCY NAME="Text-vFile-asData" VERSION="0,0,0,0" / <OS NAME="MSWin32" / <ARCHITECTURE NAME="MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-5.8" / <CODEBASE HREF="MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-5.8/Data-ICal-0.13.zip" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal" VERSION="0.13" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Entry" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Entry::Alarm::Audio" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Entry::Alarm::Display" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Entry::Alarm::Email" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Entry::Alarm::Procedure" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Entry::Event" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Entry::FreeBusy" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Entry::Journal" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Entry::TimeZone" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Entry::TimeZone::Daylight" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Entry::TimeZone::Standard" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Entry::Todo" / <PROVIDE NAME="Data::ICal::Property" VERSION="0.06" / </IMPLEMENTATION </SOFTPKG : unclosed token at line 1, column 0, byte 0 at C:/Perl/site/lib/XML/Par +ser.pm line 187
But I downloaded the zip file, and I am sure I can do a manual install tomorrow if necessary.

UPDATED: Now I see why, you support PPM4 at build 820! I am on 819.

    Hi jdtoronto,

    None of this stuff is mine, this is Serguei Trocuhelle's PPM repository. I doubt that anyone has the entire CPAN in a ppm repository since there is a percentage of the modules which are not intended for use on a Win32 platform. Did you look at PPM::Repositories?

    "PPM::Repositories - a list of all known ppm package repositories"

    Also you may want to look at http://win32.perl.org/, you may be interested in CamelPack which is the ActiveState Build plus a C compiler and make. I use Strawberry Perl at home (work is a Solaris shop mostly).

    Hope this helps.

    Martin

    You should update to build 820, because 819 cannot handle zip packages. If you don't want to for some reasons, you can just unzip this package, and move contents of blib\lib to perl\site\lib, and html to perl\html. But I really recommend to upgrade to build 820, it has a lot of fixed PPM4 issues. Serguei Trouchelle.
