I guess ppm won't let you do that...  You have to do a ppm search to
find the package name.

PPM requires you to use ActivePerl but it's never been limited to ASPN
subscribers as far as I know.  ActivePerl is freely available
<http://www.activestate.com/Products/Download/Download.plex?id=ActivePerl>.  I'm certainly not an ASPN subscriber and it works for me.


I just ran the following:

C:\SWISH-E\test>ppm rep
Repositories:
[1] ActiveState PPM2 Repository
[2] ActiveState Package Repository

C:\SWISH-E\test>ppm search Excel
