in reply to DB_File on Windows


For me this works:

1) download DB_File.zip from http://ppm.activestate.com/PPMPackages/zips/6xx-builds-only

2) unzip the archive in a directory

from the DOS prompt:

3) cd in this directory

4) write:

ppm install --location=. db_file

    Dree, Thank you for the feedback. The information that I now receive is: Error installing package 'DB_File': Read a PPD for 'DB_File', but it is not intended for this build of Perl (MSWin32-x8-multi-thread). Is there a different binary that I need? Thanks, Jim
      Looks like I got lucky and stumbled across the solution.

      I downloaded a DB_File Perl Module compiled for Microsoft Windows NT/2000. It installed without a hitch.
      Instructions for installing locally with PPM are included with the download.

      Jim
