Wondering if ppm GUI defaults to --nodeps


I'm using ActivePerl v5.8.9 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread. I am only using one ppm repo, the default ActiveState one for this build:

I am trying to write a batch script that will install all required modules to run Catalyst. If I use ppm at the command line to install Catalyst-Runtime, for example, I get a dependency error:

ppm instal Catalyst-Runtime
ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provides namespace::clean version 0.13 for Catalyst-Runtime

5.10 x64 repo not found

I am trying to install modules on activestate perl 5.10 build 1007 x64 and cannot get the repository to download. Any ideas why?

I get the following error when syncing through ppm:

Downloading ActiveState Package Repository packlist ... not found

I am trying to connect to

I would rather not have to manually compile all of the modules that I need to install for my project from cpan. Your help is much appreciated.


POSIX::strftime problem with %e (numeric day of the month)


I encounter some problems with the POSIX::strftime function using %e in the date format under my ActivePerl ( Win32).

While in 5.8.8 it caused perl to hang up completely it's now just giving an curious error message:

use strict;
use warnings;

use POSIX ();
use Time::HiRes ();

 my $now = Time::HiRes::time;
#printf POSIX::strftime("%c",localtime($now));
printf POSIX::strftime("%b %e %H:%M",localtime($now));


Use of uninitialized value in printf at C:/Users/lemke/workspace/SA/ line 9.

ActiveTcl / Expect in Windows 7

I have a problem with Expect in Windows 7

1) Install Telnet client (
2) Install ActiveTcl
3) "teacup install Expect"
4) launch Tclsh85
5) package require Expect
6) spawn telnet someipaddress

"The system cannot find the file specified"

I search the whole internet for information, and the only advice they have is "install telnet client" which I already did.

I am starting to think it is a bug with ActiveTcl.

Anyone have advice for me?
