in reply to how to get ppm command line ?

Disclaimer: I hate Windows :-)

According to the ppm help:
"
WHAT'S NEW IN VERSION 4
PPM version 4 is a complete rewrite. The main changes since PPM version 3 are:

* The command line shell has been replaced with a graphical user interface.
"

So, I guess you need to install ver. 3 instead of 4 ...

HTH,
Mickey

    Well, that's only part of the answer and only partially correct. The comment re needing v 3 -- unless it's a joke -- is not precisely true. See bingos below, or read further about ppm4's behavior from the command line when invoked with and without arguments.

    Update, 26 Jan 07: details below

    C:\>ppm help NAME ppm - Perl Package Manager, version 4.00 <snip> approx 1/2 screen of SYNOPSIS, etc </snip> Invoking "ppm" without arguments brings up the graphical user interfa +ce, but ppm can also be used as a command line tool where the first argum +ent provide the name of the sub-command to invoke. The following .... <snip> ...many screens of help </snip>

    Granted, there are some pretty annoying changes in the way one can use ppm from the command line, but IMO, they don't rise to the level of war_stoppers.
