in thread Getting Fed Up with ActiveState

xdg linked to

That page contains the following entry: (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 :-)

    The reason it's suggested to use for ActivePerl 819 or greater is that the PPM 2.0 Server repository: , 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.
