Please always (in the least) post a `perl -v' dump. Also, a `perl -V' can't hurt (esp if you're having trouble with XS).

Now, I got ActivePerl 5.8 build 804 on Win2k

This is perl, v5.8.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)

I use PPM very often and have never encountered that particular problem. Chances are its most likely a problem with your build, rather than ppm specifically.

Also, the PPM shell has always sucked, and in such cases, you should always try to use PPM, for example

perl -MPPM -e"PPM::InstallPackage( package => 'http://crazyinsomniac.p +erlmonk.org/perl/ppm/5.8/Devel-Size.ppd');" #!/usr/bin/perl use PPM; my $pack = 'http://crazyinsomniac.perlmonk.org/perl/ppm/5.8/Devel-Size +.ppd'; PPM::InstallPackage( package => $pack );
Now, can you replicate the error you are seeing at will? How can I replicate it?

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6x+5.8x. I take requests.
