How do I install a package module in to my local directory using ActiveState PPM

pravlm has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, I am using ppm. To install a package I can use the 'ppm' command , and then 'install <packagename>' would install the package in to a standard perl directory. Is there a way to make it install in a directory I mention? Please let me know Thanks.

    Hi,

    With recent ppm versions you can use the --area option to install the package into an alternative location. See ppm help install and ppm help area

    Cheers,
    Rob
