I'm using Active States Perl v5.12.4.
Anyway I tried PPM, as you suggested, and it appears to have worked. At least it says it did. :-)
So then I wondered - How come I didn't know about this?
I searched the perl documentation folder, but found no reference to it.
I finally tracked down an html describing it in /Perl/Active%20Perl/html/bin/ppm.html.
I suppose it's no secret that the AS distribution is a foul, disorganized kloodge, with multiple outdated copies of each file, scattered all over the folder tree.
