( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Might get a bit messy with AciveState perls if they decide to make "DEPENDENCY NAME" obsolete. They haven't done that yet, have they ?

No, I don't think they will ever do that as they just map DEPENDENCY into REQUIRE

http://docs.activestate.com/activeperl/5.24/lib/ActivePerl/PPM/PPD.html says

Deprecated. Required attribute is NAME. Optional attribute is VERSION. No content. Element might be repeated any number of times. Parent must be an IMPLEMENTATION element. This element expresses a dependency on another package with the given name and with the given version number or better. The other package must be installed for this package to work. This element is still recommended for PPDs that are to be used by both PPM4 and PPM3 clients, as the PPM3 clients will ignore any REQUIRE elements provided. PPM4 clients regard DEPENDENCY the same as REQUIRE, but will simply ignore the VERSION provided.
