Hey there @aviad26 — I’m a PM here at ActiveState and just wanted to follow-up on your PPM question. So, PPM is being phased out, and while it works “ok” for some older versions of Perl, it doesn’t work with newer versions. A few quick questions, as well as some possible solutions:
- Which package are you trying to add via ppm?
- Is there a reason you didn’t add it to your project on the platform? Any details about your use case or environment you can share would be awesome.
- You can add the package you wanted to install via ppm to your project via the UI and rebuild. Just click the ‘Add Packages’ button and select the package you want.
- You could use the “state” tool, which is our new CLI which will replace (and replicate) ppm in the long term. You can install it by clicking on the Dev Tools option in the platform banner.
Once you have it installed, you can add a package to your project with “state package add [@optionalversion]”. Instructions on how to install the state tool and links to the documentation are here: https://platform.activestate.com/dev-tools
Thanks for using the ActiveState platform for your builds — let us know if we can help out!
