I posted the original question via one of the mailto links on ActiveState's
website, and tried to elicit more info by replying via the mailto link
Victor provides, but it always comes back as undeliverable ... so I'm
posting the query to the group:


This is good onfo, and I thank you very much ... but I have a couple more
questions [I'm a *real* neophyte at this]: 

-how would I know (or find out) that Net::FTP translates to the 'libnet'
-is there some sort of lookup available?

Subject: Re: Installing a module (DPR#2404) 


ppm remove <package-name> 
ppm install <package-name> 

In your case: 

ppm remove/install libnet. 

Source code should be available off CPAN.
