in reply to Problem installing PMs with PPM

I'm trying to read between the lines here so tell me if I'm correct in my assumptions..

Are you trying to install the "time-hires.ppd" with ppm or are you trying to install something you've downloaded from CPAN with it?

If it's the latter, ppm is for installing PPD files.. not for installing from CPAN itself. I just tested it and I was able to install Time::HiRes. Do the following.. (which will pull it from activestate's web site)

ppm install time-hires
Hope this helps..

    I'm installing direct from CPAN... or rather, I'm NOT installing direct from CPAN, in the sense that I'm trying and failing!

      you don't need to use CPAN in the perl -MCPAN -e shell sense if you have ppm installed (i.e. it came with ActiveState's build of perl). at a command prompt type ppm install time-hires which will do it for you or you can just type ppm and enter the "shell" for ppm where the command you want is simply install time-hires

      Hope this helps

      perl -le "s,,reverse killer,e,y,rifle,lycra,,print"
