in reply to HowTo build and distribute a PPMed module for Win32

PPM::Make ~ get it while it's hot

I take requests (got a module that could be compiled under win32 but is not on any ppm repositories, I'll give it a shot given you read my readme and comply).

My repository is about to undergo a rehaul, as I'm beginning to compile modules under perl5.8. By the way, you can get a binary version of perl5.8 built by me at my repository. The only thing I changed is what perl -v spits out:
G:\>perl -v This is perl, v5.8.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread by a crazy ins +omniac Copyright 1987-2002, Larry Wall Perl may be copied only under the terms of either the Artistic License + or the GNU General Public License, which may be found in the Perl 5 source ki +t. Complete documentation for Perl, including FAQ lists, should be found +on this system using `man perl' or `perldoc perl'. If you have access to + the Internet, point your browser at, the Perl Home Pa +ge.
I provide a PPM version of BerkeleyDB, which nobody else does AFAIK. So far I've taken maybe 5 requests.

When you don't use `ppm3' to install modules (you just do a make install), You may find it useful to update your ActivePerl html docs. I do this practically every other day ;)

perl -MFile::Path -MConfig -e" rmtree(qq[$Config{installhtmldir}\\bin] +) " perl -MFile::Path -MConfig -e" rmtree(qq[$Config{installhtmldir}\\site +\\lib]) " perl -MActivePerl::DocTools -e ActivePerl::DocTools::UpdateHTML() perl -MActivePerl::DocTools -e ActivePerl::DocTools::WriteTOC()
perl -MPod::Master -e Update()
