I searched CPAN and found this:
which I want to install. I ran ppm (for ActiveState) and entered:
ppm> install WWW::Yahoo::Groups
ppm says "Searching for 'WWW::Yahoo::Groups' returned no results. Try
a broader search first."
What is going on here? Why can't ppm find it? Is there another way I
can install it? I have the archive downloaded locally. Can I install
from that archive instead?, if so how.
This does not work:
ppm> install D:\_Install\Perl\WWW-Yahoo-Groups-1.91.tar.gz
nor does this show the package I want.
ppm> search yahoo
Re: How do I install this package using ppm?
No - you have to unpack WWW-Yahoo-Groups-1.91.tar.gz to some folder, cd to
that folder and run 'perl Makefile.PL', 'nmake test', and 'nmake install'.
(See also the INSTALL file that's part of WWW-Yahoo-Groups-1.91.tar.gz.) If
you don't have nmake:
Then run the downloaded executable to install nmake.exe to the location of
your choice. (Add that location to your system's path.)
I think this module requires WWW::Mechanize. There's a ppm for that at
ppm install http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/WWW-Mechanize.ppd .
Can't find a ppm for WWW-Yahoo-Groups anywhere.
