in thread What is the format of a .packlist file for a PPM repository?

My local repository works with and without the summary files; if a summary file is there, it uses it, and if it's not, it downloads and parses each ppd file it finds.

    Now completely baffled

    Size Issue? I have over 7,000 local '.ppd' files

    I know it works with nearly 7,000 from a remote web site with the package files but could there be an issue with reading the files where there is no index?

    I have got the command line working:

    ppm> rep sync --force --max-ppd 8000 2 Downloading LocalD packlist...done ppm> s ldap *** no packages matching 'ldap' found *** ppm> rep „  id „  pkgs „  name „  „  1 „  n/a „  ActiveState Package Repository „  „  2 „  0 „  LocalD „  „  3 „  n/a „  Dubious „  (1 enabled repository) ppm> rep desc 2 Id: 2 Name: LocalD URL: file:///D:/ActiveState_CD/ppmrep Enabled: yes Last-Status: 200 OK Last-Access: 2 minutes and 24 seconds ago Refresh-In: 10 hours Last-Modified: 4 days ago ppm>
    The active repository with 0 packages in is the same one I used with the earlier version of ppm (as in 817) which could find all the packages.

    I now just don't know what is going on; it is probably something simple as your works.

    Nothing succeeds like a budgie with no teeth.

[Eily]: what, there's a difference between proof of concept and production?
[LanX]: 20 years ago traders were complaining about the latency of the trading system...
[ambrus]: I'm currently in the process of rewriting my proof of concept programs. They sort of developped organically as I was experimenting, so now I've got an ugly mess of multiple programs and one-liners held together by nothing. I'll have to rewrite them to som
