in thread DB_File for windows?

Actually it (= ppm) didn't come with my version of Active Perl
Can't be.

PPM is ActivePerl's Windows only counterpart for CPAN, which uses repositories on wbsites, with precompiled modules. The standard repository is at and subdirectories. The above URL only points toward repositories with ZIP files, but there are other subdirectories as well, for example the old 5.6.x repository, and the the extended 5.6.x repository

    Actually I found this link to be more direct. The link in the above node took me to an indexed list. This link should take you to the page where you can download the package. And DB_File is listed there.(It wasn't alphabatized the way I expected, as the list makers put DB_F after DBF)

    I've never seen an ActiveState install of perl where the ppm was missing. If you go to a command prompt and type in PPM, what kind of error message do you get?
