in thread how to use ppm with source built perl?

If you compiled perl with gcc, then ppm won't work because it works with binaries compiled with (IIRC) VC++.

I have a handbuilt perl with GCC and most binary ppms from ActiveState work fine with it. I also build binary ppms with GCC that I use with ActivePerl

    Are you saying that an ActiveState .ppd of a module that has an XS component will work with a perl compiled with gcc? Are you also saying that a hand-rolled .ppd using a gcc compile of a module that has an XS component will work with ActivePerl? I've been under the impression that neither was possible.

      I've used binary modules compiled with gcc + a gcc-built perl on ActiveState perl. I don't remember specifically trying ActiveState-built modules on my gcc-built perl - but I've not encountered any problems.

      I generally use my gcc perl to compile modules that can be installed by other users in the the department that have a standard, supported desktop installation of ActiveState perl. Off the top of my head some of the binary modules that I've built and used in this way are:
