in reply to tool for managing perl in win32

If you use active state and all or most of your packages were installed using ppm (or ppm-shell) then you can create a list of all your installed packaged usiing:

ppm profile save [ *filename* ] Write profile of configured repositories and installed packages to the given file. If no file is given then print the profile XML to standard output.

And then (try) install them into your new installation using:

ppm profile restore [ *filename* ] Install the packages listed in the given profile file. If no file +is given try to read the profile from standard input.

Which would be great if a) all the packages we needed were available as PPDs and if all the packages for which PPDs are were once available for 5.10.1 were also available for the newer versions; b) if the restore didn't stop every time it encounters a package that isn't available; C) if the profile mechanism would handle non-AS repositories.
