[Bioperl-l] Problems with installing bioperl using PPM3

Hello all,

I have ActiveState perl 5.6.1 BUILD 633 installed on a local machine running windows 2000 and I do the following:

I type "ppm3" at the command prompt
then type "search bioperl" (the repository is set to http://www.bioperl.org/DIST/).

a listing is displayed with numbers and when I attemp to issue the command "describe 20" or describe "package name" I get an error saying:

Can't call method "name" without a package or object reference at E:\Perl\bin/ppm3-bin line 4265, <$__ANONIO__> line 9.

I don't know what it means. I searched the bioperl site and looked at various installation documents but nothing seems to address this type of problem.

Any help you are able to provide is greatly appreciated.
