in thread ppm rep describe

Try something like

# escape shell metachars, search around for something complete $name =~ s/([&"])/^$1/g; my $rep_describe = `ppm rep describe "$name"`;
See when you use ``, you're subject to the shell (like the pod says).

MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
