Firstly, problems discovered and resulting fixes will help all
platforms, not just Windows. So thanks for trying it out and reporting
back. Secondly, the PPM method, like Bundle::BioPerl, is all-or-nothing.
The CPAN installation method allows an interactive choice of which
optional things to install.
If what you say about DB_File is true, then that's a great shame!
So I can do further trouble-shooting of my own, what is the sure-fire
way to completely clean-out an ActivePerl install, including any modules
you might have installed with PPMs or CPAN?
