in reply to Cannot find SDL library with PPM

I downloaded Alien::SDL and i found an ,what seems to be, excellent tutorial. But all examples start with :'use SDL' and they don't work because i don't have that module. I tried downloading the SDL module without the help of PPM but it failed to install.

    If your perl version is between 5.10.0 and 5.24.x, then add http://www.sisyphusion.tk/ppm/ to your repo list and run simply:
    ppm install SDL
    That should give you all you need - get back to us if it doesn't.

    I haven't built SDL ppm packages for later versions of perl outside of that range, and I won't be.
    In fact, that ppm repository should cease to exist in about 10 months time.

    Cheers,

      Back it up to SourceForge or strawberry or some such?
