in reply to DBD-Oracle missing via PPM?

Try another repository ;-)

ActiveState still distribute DBD::Oracle and can be found here <>. It has been a long time since I last used ActivePerl, but doesn't it come with a ppd utility? If so, you should be able to install the above ppd via that if you are still unable to get it via ppm.

    It has been a long time since I used perl on Windows!!!

    I remember that was a good source for packages (i never liked ppm)

    is it possible to do perl -MCPAN -e shell with activestate perl?

      To answer your immediate question - yes, you can use the CPAN shell with activestate Perl.

      Remember though - if the module you are attempting to install has any C code then you'll also need a compiler. The benefit of using ppm on Windows is that you'll be installing a pre-compiled binaries (dll's etc).
