in thread Script to update your PPM Repositories

I've been looking to incorporate the various changes and suggesions the monks have made into my top post, and maybe even taking out a PAUSE idea and adding this as my contribution to CPAN.

Looking over what you did, however, I notice there's no PPM::UI when I searched cpan. Could you clarify?

    Sorry, I shouldn't have linked to it like that.

    PPM::UI is part of the ActiveState installation. On my machine, it lives in d:/Perl/site/lib/PPM/

    Here's the transcript to demonstrate:

    D:\>perl -demo Loading DB routines from version 1.28 Editor support available. Enter h or `h h' for help, or `perldoc perldebug' for more help. main::(-e:1): mo DB<1> use PPM::UI DB<2> p $INC{'PPM/'} d:/Perl/site/lib/PPM/
    However, ppm3 doesn't seem to know about PPM::UI -- at least, you can't query PPM::UI, or search it, etc. In fact, I find the search and query functionality oddly designed, as I have to know the distribution name, or work at figuring out the wildcard/logical expression to match it. Maybe I just don't know how to use it.

    So other than installing ActiveState, I don't know where to get PPM::UI from. Which means if there's an update, it's either buried in PPM, or it's part of the ActiveState install package (and then you only get the update when you update Perl).
