in reply to Cannot find SDL library with PPM

Yes, I downloaded them all with force and it is working. I had to set the path variable to: 'C:\Perl\site\bin\SDL' but i managed to do that. Thank you all, especially mr.syphilis, I could never have done this on my own.

    Thanks for confirming ... I remember now that with modules that hadn't been updated in a while, the recommended way was to use --force.
    This was needed because each package contained it's own copies of a couple of gcc dlls upon which each package depended.
    I eventually hit upon a better method that removed the need for --force, but not all packages were updated to benefit from that improvement.
