ActivePerl, my Perl on Windows

I mainly work on Windows, and after some study, I finally decided to go for ActivePerl from ActiveState. This is a good Perl distribution on Windows, easy to install and maintain. The Perl Package Manager (PPM) is comfortable to look for new modules and install them. Their repository is pretty up-to-date, but from times to times, you don't find the last version or some specific modules. So I decided to look for an alternate repository, and I found this one. Simply add as a new repository in PPM.
