I'm using ActiveState Perl 5.6 on a Win32 platform and need to install "Encode" for some utf-8 shenanigans. However I get the following error from PPM when trying:
PPM> install Encode
Install package 'Encode?' (y/N): y
Installing package 'Encode'...
Error installing package 'Encode': Error reading http://ppm.activestat
I've checked the repository and it isn't there. Does anyone know:
(1) Where I could get hold of this module from ?
(2) An alternative way of decoding UTF-8 strings (must be compatible with Win32 5.6) ?
