The old PPM FAQ

The old-style manuals had a useful FAQ for PPM. It can still be accessed, and still applies with newer version numbers.

ActiveTcl 8.6 not being detected by ActivePython 3.6

I have installed Active Python 3.6 and Active Tcl 8.6 on a Mac with seemingly no issues, but I have realised Tcl/tk 8.5 is still being used. I am trying to use Tkinter with Python3.6 and need to use Tcl/tk 8.6. Any help would be great as I have spent hours on this already. I believe I need to override something Apple is doing.

Cant find program anywhere after installation on my Mac

After installing ActivePyhon on my Mac OS Sierra v. 10.12.3, I can't find it anywhere. No trace in the Launchpad, and the folder in install location: /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework doesn't even exist. I did not get any error while installing and all seemed to be going smoothly. That is until I can't find it, that is.

Hope anyone can help a new member of the ActiveState community

Mac ActiveTcl installer not signed?

https://twitter.com/WoodLloydWood/status/764317211926274048

Why aren't ActiveTcl installers signed? How can I convince users to trust and install ActiveTcl if it's not signed? And why is your twitter account silent on this?

Thanks.

Komodo IDE @INC Does not point to installed Perl Modules on Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

I have installed Perlbrew and cpanm on my Mac OS X since El Capitan locks down the native perl installation.

When I "use Spreadsheet::ParseExcel;", I get an edit error "Can't locate Spreadsheet/ParseExcel in @INC (you may need to install the Spreadsheet::ParseExcel module) ...

I have installed Spreadsheet::ParseExcel using cpanm. I have modified the Komodo "File Properties and Settings" -> Additional Perl Interperter so the directory is there, but I still get the error even though the directory is in the path. What could I be doing wrong?

ActiveState Support Policy for ActivePerl Community Editions

Question: 

What is ActiveState's Support Policy for Community Editions?

Answer: 

The two most recent stable releases are available for free download. This corresponds to the Perl Community's own version support policy.

Whenever the underlying Perl version becomes unsupported by the Perl community itself, support for the corresponding ActivePerl versions will be limited to Business Edition and Enterprise Edition customers.

You can continue to use older ActivePerl releases indefinitely under the terms of the Community Edition license, but won't be able to download the installers from ActiveState.

The PPM repositories for unsupported ActivePerl releases will remain freely accessible for at least 6 months after support ends, but will no longer be updated with new builds from CPAN.

ActiveTcl8.5.18 installation failure on OS X - El Capitan

I attempted to install ActiveTCL8.5.18.0.298892 on a Mac running the El Capitan beta (yes, I know it's a beta of an operating system) but received an installation failure error twice. I was able to install ActiveTcl8.6.4.1.299124 successfully on the same machine under the latest El Capitan beta.

Installation conflict for ActiveTcl/Tk

I just installed activeTcl 8.6.3 on my Mac mini running Yosemite, version 10.10.1, in order to be able to use Tkinter with python. One program I've written, which runs fine on a linux machine crashes when I try to run it with the following messages:

objc[5570]: Class TKApplication is implemented in both /System/Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework/Versions/8.5/Tk and /Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework/Versions/8.6/Tk. One of the two will be used. Which one is undefined.
