Re: How to install Tk-ImageButton module in perl 5.12 using ppmby BrowserUk (Pope)

Unfortunately, it is quite likely that many of the modules you could download for 5.10 no longer compile for newer versions.
The ongoing barely justifiable changes to Perl's internal architecture are, with apparent disregard, breaking more and more modules with every major revision.
According to ActiveState statistics:
I keep hanging on and hanging on to 5.10 hoping to see some sign of a reversal of this trend, but there is no sign yet.
The changes also seem to have done for Strawberry Perl, which was the only vaguely viable alternative to AS.
