Question: 

How do I make Bioperl work with ActivePerl?

Answer: 

There is an extensive set of Perl modules available for bioinformatics, and bioperl is probably the best collection around. However, we don't have the latest version in our PPM repository, because it is difficult to build automatically.

However, the bioperl folks have come to the rescue, and have detailed instructions on how to use their PPM repository to install the latest version. Good on them! If you need bioperl, just look there and set yourself up -- it makes updating a snap.
