Are you sure they were asking you to sign up for ASPN Perl? ActiveState also have ASPN Open, which is free. I've not installed the latest ActivePerl, but I imagine that signing up for ASPN Open would be sufficient - it's only needed so it can store your PPM profile online. ASPN Perl on the other hand gives you access to several O'Reilly books online and the Perl Dev Kit. Try again and see if it works with ASPN Open. Personally, I prefer PPM2 and find PPM3 klunky and annoying.

Update: Under the What's New Section here AS say that access to a "paid" ASPN account is required if you want to manage installation profiles. You can use PPM3 without that functionality. From what I can see, it just records what modules you have installed, so you can roll back or duplicate the configuration on another machine. I wouldn't be too concerned about that, you can write your own profile manager for free ;)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
