( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have activestate on winXP.
I have installed/updated modules using ppm without a hitch.
I want to try Win32::Rase but have not been able to find it with ppm so I (nervously) tried the method you describe.
The 'install' command doesn't find it but the 'i' command seems to know about it.
Any advice please? Thanks in advance.
