in reply to DBD::Oracle install problem

but could not find a generalised solution or an explanation of why this is happening
Really? Only a handfull of things could cause "Permission denied". You either don't have correct access permissions (unlikely), or the directory is use (open dirhandle), or it isn't empty. Example
C:\>perl -e"mkdir 1234; opendir IN, 1234;rmdir 1234 or die $!" Permission denied at -e line 1. C:\>echo >1234\test C:\>dir 1234 Volume in drive C has no label. Volume Serial Number is 44B0-3C2E Directory of C:\1234 04/22/2006 03:49 AM <DIR> . 04/22/2006 03:49 AM <DIR> .. 04/22/2006 03:49 AM 13 test 1 File(s) 13 bytes 2 Dir(s) 3,360,935,936 bytes free C:\>perl -e"opendir IN, 1234;rmdir 1234 or die $!" Permission denied at -e line 1. C:\>
Any help would be appreciated very much. Thank you.
Well it appears to be a bug in ppm (and maybe other things), so contact the maintainers of ppm, and maybe even search the mailing list and bug database.

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).

[erix]: yeah, scanning pre-loaded. I wouldn't have it any other way. As I say, my attention is a rare commodity, jealously guarded.
[erix]: ok, ok. happy pipe-dreams :P
[shmem]: have a good time inside your information bubble.
[erix]: perhaps we can have common hindsight at these thing in a few years time
