Re: What modules are shipped with ActivePerl on Windows in the default installation?

in reply to What modules are shipped with ActivePerl on Windows in the default installation?

If I'm not misinformed, inside the ActivePerl directory there are three directories for modules:

lib/
The directory containing the modules that corelist knows about
site/
The modules that were installed post-installation by means of cpan, ppm, or whatver
vendor/
The non-core modules that were by default installed by your Perl distribution

At least it works that way for my Strawberry installation, and I seem to remember it was the same for ActivePerl. I am sure I remember that ActivePerl at least had those directories, and I assume they're used the same way.

    It appears you are correct. There's a site directory in my ActivePerl install that contains both those modules that I've installed with ppm and one module I've installed from source, but does not contain the modules that came with the ActivePerl install.

    Thank you for the answer.
