I wonder how PPM will distinguish between the two.

PPM is (at its heart) a perl script. It will install into whichever Perl installation is used to run it. So, if you do:

path c:\perl32\bin\; ... ppm

It will run under and install into the 32-bit version.

If you do:

path c:\perl64\bin\; ... ppm

It operates upon the 64-bit install. (Assuming you use your paths not mine :)

One possibility for making life a little easier is to have both perls in your path (your preferred version first), and rename the ppm.bat files in the two subdirectories as (say) ppm32.bat and ppm64.bat.

You could also rename (say) the 64-bit perl.exe to perl64.exe. And you can set up two sets of file associations:

C:\test>assoc .pl .pl=Perl C:\test>ftype perl perl=c:\perl32\bin\perl.exe "%1" %* C:\test>assoc .pl64 .pl64=Perl64 C:\test>ftype perl64 perl=c:\perl64\bin\perl64.exe "%1" %* C:\test>set pathext;.pl64;.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;

Then you can specify which perl is used for your perl scripts by giving them the appropriate extensions.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'

"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?
