The other PPM repositories definitely help, but I do wonder how many people know about them? The more obstacles in the way of getting things to work and the more people will shrug and just reach for the next solution.

Cheers,

    PPM Repositories on win32.perl.org is an attempt to help. But I agree it's one more hurdle to productivity.

    -xdg

    Code written by xdg and posted on PerlMonks is public domain. It is provided as is with no warranties, express or implied, of any kind. Posted code may not have been tested. Use of posted code is at your own risk.

      xdg linked to http://win32.perl.org/wiki/index.php?title=PPM_Repositories

      That page contains the following entry:

      http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/ (use this for ActivePerl 819 and greater)

      Which is somewhat misleading, I believe. Afaik, that repository provides ppm's for all versions of ActivePerl 5.8.x (and all versions of Strawberry Perl 5.8.x, too). That particular entry is surely inaccurate ? (Unless someone can convince me to do otherwise, I'll amend it tomorrow :-)

      Cheers,
      Rob
        The reason it's suggested to use http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/ for ActivePerl 819 or greater is that the PPM 2.0 Server repository: http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/cgi-bin/ppmserver?urn:/PPMServer58 , is a SOAP-based one, which ppm4 (used by ActivePerl 819) doesn't support. Instead, ppm4 uses a local DBD::SQLite database, which is faster for searches.
