in thread Getting Fed Up with ActiveState

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.
