CrazyPPM repository, interested?

Recently I acquired a compiler for me win32 box, and I started compilin' all them packages I couldn't before. ActiveState compiles only those packages their users request (the subscribers), and I usually couldn't get the latest and the greatest, sooo, tell me, would you be interested if I were to run a PPM repository? Ya can drop me /tell's /msg's and I'd see if I can compile the stuff (I probably will), and I'll put it up.

I already made my first ppm and I have put it up at and ignatz tells me it installed ok, althought he hasn't yet tested it ... feel free to do that, lemme know what you think.

for perl 5.6.x
for perl 5.8.x
but be sure to read README.html.

UPDATE: I striked part about /msg (I only take requests by email, and subject must conform). You must to read README.html.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
