Help with ppm command
Hi Guys:

It looks like my ppm batch file is not working. When running ppm from my run command in win-xp - I only get a flicker. Also if I run either

ppm install DBI or ppm install DBD::mysql

from the dos prompt - the error message is ppm is not recognized as an internal or external command.

I have ActivePerl- I assumed it was installed correctly because all of the perl programs I've written so far has compiled.

It sounds like ppm isn't setup in your path.

Search for ppm on your hard drive and then use the full path, eg....

C:\Perl\bin\ppm install DBI
