Ah, sorry. Of course. There is a command 'describe' in PPM.

Lets say you make a search for Foo:

PPM> search Foo
Which returns the result
1. Foo 2. Foo::Bar
When you then try 'install 1' to get Foo installed, you get the error message "No suitable implementation found" or some such. Then do 'describe 1', followed by another 'install 1'. Describe does list what platforms are available, and if 'MSWin32-x86-multi-thread' is not in the list, you are out of luck. Many times though, it seems PPM doesn't really check for this, but the describe forces it to do so, making the installation succeed.

And yes, you can do 'describe Foo' directly instead.

Hope that helps.

[Corion]: ambrus: I wrote the handler so that it stops the timer if it's supposed to be a one-shot
[Discipulus]: are you using Prima Corion? good morning Corion and ambrus, btw
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah, I rediscovered it when I wanted to have a simple (cross-platform) wrapper for my OpenGL program so it has a nice window etc
[Corion]: ... and one thing leads to another, so ambrus provided the integration with AnyEvent so I can now conveniently make HTTP requests from that app too :)
