[PPM (Perl Package Manager)] Installing multiple modules from a single ppd fileby syphilis (Chancellor)
|on Mar 28, 2017 at 10:17 UTC||Need Help??|
syphilis has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Here follows a post I sent to ActiveState's ppm mailing list about 24 hours ago:
Is it possible to have the one ppd file download, unpack and install more than one tarred and gzipped blib file.
That is, instead of having just one "<CODEBASE HREF= ..." line, I'm looking for the option of having multiple such "<CODEBASE HREF=...." lines present in the one ppd file, such that a number of different tarred and gzipped blib files are dowwnloaded, unpacked and installed.
Possible ? ... or do I have to put the additional files into their own separate ppm distro and pull them in with "DEPENDENCY NAME".
Btw, is there a difference between DEPENDENCY NAME and REQUIRE NAME ?
It's a very low volume mailing list, and no replies yet.
So I thought I might repeat the post here.
I've a vague notion that, at some time in the past, I've come across a ppd file that would install multiple perl modules, but I'm currently unable to locate such an example.
