RESOLVED SITE ISSUE (was "getting HTTP 503 Status code")

Trying to install Window Expect by running teacup install Expect command for Win7 and getting the following:

RESOLVED SITE ISSUE (was "403 Forbidden Error When Installing Crypt-SSLeay")

When I try to install the module Crypt-SSLeay, I get the message "install failed: 403 Forbidden". I've tried installing from ppm gui and from the ppm prompt and get the same results in both places. Any suggestions?

I am using Perl version 5.14.2 and PPM version 4.14 on a Windows 7 64 bit laptop.

Thank you

ActivePerl, Windows Script Host/ActiveX and Unicode

Hello list,

[note: I've tried posting this to the Perl-Win32-Users mailing list, but the list is having problems creating new subscriptions].

I need some help/clarification with Win32::OLE and Window Script Host / ActivePerl, and Unicode from and more importantly back to a calling program.

A program I use (Directory Opus) supports doing renames via Windows Script Host (VBScript, JScript, PerlScript/ActivePerl). The perl script I’ve written accepts some file names as input, and returns transformed file names as output.

I have set

Win32::OLE->Option(CP => CP_UTF8)

embedding fonts in epub

I am using InDesign CS6 to create an epub. I followed the instructions in the Sigil User Manual 0.7.2 for embedding my own font, and it doesn't take. Here is what I did:
(1) I checked the CSS to be sure the font was correctly listed (span.Kanji-book-JI {
font-family:"Remembering Kana", sans-serif;
} .
(2) I replaced the font in the fonts folder (RememberingKana.ttf) with my own (Remembering Kana.ttf) and removed the extra space so that it had the same name as the one automatically generated.

PyScripter Installation

I am a beginner and interested in Python. I've downloaded the 3.3 version and everything seems to be OK. I would like to try PyScripter as an IDE and would like to know if there is any reason I can't download it, install it, and use it with the ActiveState version of Python.

Javadoc-style comments ( /** ... */ ) do not fold in .php files

Hi there,

when working with JavaScript files (extension .js), my Javadoc comments:


fold just fine, but when the file extension is .php, they stop folding. Is there any workaround or solution apart from using

/** {{{
 }}} */

to force a fold?

Many Thanks

Can't download Tk ppm for Perl 5.14 64-bit


I have been trying to download the Tk ppmx from the site but it keeps failing with a:

An error occurred during a connection to

SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.

(Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

Can any give me some clues on this? Or is there another location to download that ppmx?



Can't locate in @INC

Hi all,

I have been using active state perl for over 8 years.
The person that setup the dev servers have since left.

We purchased the latest version of PDK.
I installed a new server with PDK 9.2.1 and Perl 5.16.3

The PERLLIB ENV is set to c:\Perl64\site\lib and c:\Perl64\lib

When I compile the perl script to exe everything works fine.
When I execute the script I get the following error:

Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains: C:\dev\perl\) at /Net/ line 536

It is almost like the compiler don't add the libraries to the exe.

redraw problems for command output screen - Komodo 8.5


Part of the first column is consistently cut off in the command output screen for Komodo 8.5. This does not happen for Komodo IDE 8. I am using fixed fonts. I tried changing the font size and it had no effect. If I resize the window it will improve a bit sometimes until the next redraw. In general about half of the first character in the first column is clipped.

Do you have any suggestions or work around.

Enter key stops working

Any idea of what can cause the enter key to suddenly stop working without apparent reason? It doesn't happen very often but when it does I need to restart Komodo because I can only produce new line feeds if I copy previous ones with the clipboard.

(And, no, I didn't remember to check the logs until I had already restarted.)

No offence but this is the kind of issues that only happen with Komodo...
