( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Some good suggestions in the earlier replies.

I use the technique Holli suggested of running a mini-repository of my own. I have a machine which I use for testing. I install new versions of modules on it using PPM. If a module tests out okay in our environment, we move a copy of it to the repository, then anyone can install it - but nobody developing for me is allowed to install from anywhere else.

Windows and CPAN can be difficult, but it is not impossible. There is another node here which talks about installing modules generally and it has some instructionson dealing with CPAN and C compilers on Windows. If you look ta the node Holli linked to you will find a link to the other node there somewhere.

    [Corion]: marto: That would be cool :) There is no kids care at Perly events unfortunately, so it's not entirely family friendly
    [Corion]: I think I should define a set of (say) five projects through which I rotate from time to time, just to prevent myself from being bored/annoyed by the problems they get stuck in ;)
    [marto]: Corion, not bringing the kids would make it ideal :P
    [marto]: a suggestion, have one project in the list that isn't programming/perl related
    [Corion]: marto: Yeah, things are more parent-friendly the way they are ;))
    [marto]: some hardware/makey thing
    [Corion]: marto: Ah, I'm currently drifting to that again, over"painting" (well with Inkscape) one of my photographs and thinking about vectorizing some other images ...
    [marto]: Corion, yes something 'artistic', so that or some music. Even combine some things, build a musical instrument :)
    [Corion]: marto: Naah, I'm avoiding that rabbit hole ;) Sometimes I think of using Perl to create MIDI to generate music, or at least the harmonies to which I could jam, but then that would eat even more into available time ;-))
