UPDATE: I don't know what changed, but ppm works without the funny errors, catalyst is installed, so for the time being I'm forgetting that ever happened.

Hi, I am on winxp, active state, and currently running these four lines to get a basic install for catalyst, which executes over several minutes.

ppm install Module::Build ppm repository add Theoryx5 ppm repository add Catalyst +pms/ ppm install Catalyst
Is there some easy way I can put this in a dos batch file to get the whole thing done at one click, instead of having to keep check the dos window for when to run the next line? Just putting the four lines into a batch file didn't work.
UPDATE: Actually, even when I run all four lines, that doesn't work either. Weird thing is, when I ran it from my home computer a few hours ago, it did work. Now, when I run it I get, "PPM::PPD::init: not a PPD and not a file:" and a bunch of html. Not sure what is going on here. I have gotten these errors before, and worked around with nmake, nmake test, nmake install, and maybe that will work this time too, but I would like to better understand why magic ppm sometimes fails and if there is anything I can do other than reverting to making manually. Installing catalyst with ppm is a lot easier than the manual way.
