Three possibilities:
  • I assume you are behind a proxy. Try to set the HTTP_proxy, HTTP_proxy_user and HTTP_proxy_pass environment variables. Then use ppm again:
    $ set http_proxy= $ set http_proxy_user=username $ set http_proxy_pass=password

    where x is the ip-address of the proxy, and y the port.

  • Surf to the repository and download the PPD-file. Open it with a text-editor. Identify the line that says <CODEBASE HREF="x86/Convert-ASN1-0.14-PPM.tar.gz" />. Download that tar.gz-file. Put both files in a directory, the tarball must be saved relative to the ppd as stated in the ppd (here ./x86). Add that directory as a repository to ppm.
    ppm> rep add local /path/to/ppd
    Then install the module with ppm.

  • Download only the tarball, extract it and copy the files to appropriate places in the perl library tree.

Here are the locations of the repositories. I forgot them last night. The list is different, because I am at work now.

[marto]: LanX yesterday I found out about Gish gallop tactic
[marto]: "Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education, dubbed this approach the Gish gallop, describing it as "where the creationist is allowed to run on for 45 minutes or an hour, spewing forth torrents of error that the
[marto]: evolutionist hasn't a prayer of refuting in the format of a debate." She also criticized Gish for failing to answer objections raised by his opponents"
[erix]: one would hope evolutionists haven't any prayers anyway
