in reply to Finding precompiled XML::LibXML (5.16, ActiveState)

It seems that the ppm command line syntax has changed, but the Repositories module has not changed accordingly.

You wrote this code?:

print `ppm repository add $_ $Repositories{$_}->{location}`;

From the error message:

files, gui, help, info, install, list, log, profile, query, remove, +repo,

repo not repository?

    No, I got it from the aforementioned Node ... but I must admit that I overlooked the 'repo' in the error message. Fixing this, worked, in that I am now able to update the module. Thanks a lot.

      Note how the version of PPM used in the tutorial is at least 10 years old ;)
