( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm puzzled. (nothing new there!)

I've got ActiveState Perl 5.8 on Win 2000 Pro. I'm downloading the 5.8 ppd packages from Activestate & installing them with "ppm install $packageName.ppd". Every so often perl sends a pop-up telling me it's teminating because "the memory could not be 'written'", and this message appears at the bottom of my shell output:
Free to wrong pool 15d2850 not 3e3f2238 at C:\Perl\site\lib\ppm-conf\ppminst.bat line 781

At line 781, ppminst.bat has: print PPMXML <<INSTPKG;
... which means nothing to me.

Could the wise monks please:
1.) Explain what the problem is.
2.) Explain the cause.
3.) Explain the fix.

So Long
