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

Hmm, I have the same problem:

ppmprofile.bat save is not supported for PPM4 yet...

Here's what I intend to try as a workaround when I upgrade to 5.10. Any suggestions for improvement welcome.

(1) At the command line, run this command:

ppm list --fields name > C:/my_modules.txt

(2) Uninstall 5.8, install 5.10 (as per the ActiveState instructions that you quote).

(3) Run the following script:

open my $fh, '<', 'C:/my_modules.txt' or die "Oops: $!\n"; while ( <$fh> ) { chomp; print "Installing $_...\n"; system ( "ppm", "install", $_ ); }

A bit of a kludge? but better than trying to do the whole thing manually???

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
