( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
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 http://crazyinsomniac.perlmonk.org/perl/misc/DB_File-1.803.with.DB-4.0.14.tar.gz and ignatz tells me it installed ok, althought he hasn't yet tested it ... feel free to do that, lemme know what you think.

update:
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.

Title:
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.
