Re^3: PPM stopped working after trying to install XML::LibXML
in thread PPM stopped working after trying to install XML::LibXML [SOLVED]
C:\data\tmp and C:\data\Perl\etc both exist.
At first I thought it made no difference which package I try to install. The ones I tried and used Archive::Tar end with a similar error, but the ones which use Archive::Zip work!
So there must be something wrong with the use of Archive::Tar as used by ActivePerl::PPM::Client. ()
A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
