Good point. It's strange that the Date::Calc and Date::Manip modules are included in the ActiveState Perl documentation (generated by pod2html, obviously) and the PPM Repository, but not in the standard distribution.

Anybody know why ActiveState didn't include these modules with the standard distribution? They wouldn't have added much to the size.

    Because those modules aren't part of the standard distribution on any platform. As far as I know, the only non-standard modules that ActiveState have added to their distribution are the ones which are necessary in order to use ppm - i.e. the LWP bundle.

      And in 5.6 the MySQL DBD's...I believe these aren't part of the standard distribution either...
