DESCRIPTION ^

This is a list of all known ppm repositores (barring the activestate ones). Currently, most of them are Win32 specific, mainly because the *nix folks have CPAN/CPANPLUS as well as free compilers.

An example entry in %Repositories looks like:

    datetime => {
        location  => 'http://datetime.perl.org/download',
        Type      => 'Webpage',
        Active    => 1,
        Notes     => 'Get your DateTime modules here',
        PerlV     => [ 5.6, 5.8 ],
        PerlO     => ['MSWin32'],
    },

The meaning of the key/value pairs should be obvious.

Active is either 1, or 0, and it indicates whether or not that particular repository existed (you could reach it via the internet), and contained ppm packages, when this module was released.

PerlO is the value of $^O. The value 'perl' is used to indicate pure-perl (meaning all OS').

    $^O values for various operating systems:
        http://alma.ch/perl/perloses.htm
        http://crazyinsomniac.perlmonk.org/perl/misc/perloses.htm

See the SYNOPSIS for example usage. See PPM for help with ppm.
