I have ActivePerl 629 - which I compiled, so PPM would be the one that comes with build 628.

I'll try on some other machines and see what happens. But I was looking through the PPM.pm source and it implies that repositories can have "Summary" files. These summaries somehow aid the search routines. I am guessing that PPM::SOAPServer is a SOAP service that acts as the repository and searches the PPD files returning descriptions etc that match the search. But maybe I have the wrong end of the stick!

$,=reverse'"ro_';s,$,\$,;s,$,lc ref sub{},e;$,
=~y'_"' ';eval"die";print $_,lc substr$@,0,3;

    [moritz]: seems there's a size limit for hostenum, and the error message just sucks
    [vrk]: None, other than the location of the error: auto/NetAddr/IP/ _splitref.al
    [vrk]: Aha, there's a reference to "bug report 82719" in NetAddr/IP.pm's sub _splitref.
    [moritz]: wow, that's their idea of an "improved error message"
    [moritz]: how about "This network is too large to enumerate all host addresses." or so?
    [vrk]: Well, there's a call to notcontiguous() before the error, whose description is "counts the bit positions remaining in the mask when the rightmost '0's are removed"
    [vrk]: Clear as mud!
