in reply to Throwing Exceptions and Error Handling

I talked to Active State this morning about their Perl Repository, as their copy of DBI is out of date.

Their response was "...modules are added based on input from our Perl Direct customers specifically and our customer base at large, but we don't add modules on request, per se, unless it's part of a service contract."

FWIW, they said their copy of DBI should be updated soon.

Too bad isn't as friendly as PPM :) As was pointed out earlier, installing CPAN modules manually isn't terribly difficult. However, "... laziness ..."

    CPAN would not be a pain to install at all if MakeMaker worked in ActiveState! I think it doesn't like spaces in file names... guess what the normal location for executables is?

    Strange answer though... I thought it was basically all of CPAN. Why leave something out?


      MakeMaker works fine on WinNT and beyond if you have a version of "make" and, if needed for the module, a C compiler. It doesn't work in Win9x because "cmd" is pretty darn stupid. Searching should find you many more details on the problems and some ways to work around some of them.

              - tye (but my friends call me "Tye")
      When I was writing Morse::Code I ran into a little trouble on win98 with MakeMaker, and one issue turned out to be a 'bug' in, here's a 'fix' i found for it in some perl forum (or newsgroup, i don't recall):
      UNINSTALL = $(PERL) -MExtUtils::Install \ -e "uninstall($$ARGV[0],1,1); print qq(\nUninstall is deprecated. Plea +se check the);" \ -e "print qq( packlist above carefully.\n There may be errors. Remove + the);" \ -e "print qq( appropriate files manually.\n Sorry for the inconvenien +ces.\n)" }; # fixed by crazyinsomniac changed all \" \" to qq()

      One reason I dislike cpan is because it is retardedly biased towards windows users, and updating cpan automatically is dang near impossible, not to mention the things it does by default (like keep some . files in root, etc)

      Disclaimer: Don't blame. It came from inside the void

      perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"
