That's true that it's relatively straightforward to set up a ppm repository, and build ppm packages with the right tools. A minor point, for archival purposes:
Certain modules could be automatically declined like PDL, which requires a Fortran compiler, or modules that require special licensing like DBD::Oracle or DBD::DB2.
  • PDL, as well as PGPLOT, which PDL can use, are available as ppm packages, thanks to the heroic efforts of syphilis.
  • ActiveState has worked out the licensing arrangements in order to supply a DBD-Oracle ppm package.
  • IBM gave permission for us to provide a DBD-DB2 ppm package.

[marto]: I had some ideas about that Corion
[marto]: I'll send a message over the weekend maybe :P
[Corion]: choroba: I avoided the "fun" of emergency shopping for a new flat iron by trying the flat iron without the timer that sat between it and the mains power. Seems as if just the timer is broken.
[Corion]: marto: Heh, would be cool!
Corion munches on the traditional German winter fruit, strawberries. Imported from Spain at the price of EUR 0.77 per 150g - not really cheap but surprisingly good for a winter produce
