Odd as it may seem, my PPM is still working in this
5.8.0 Perl.  I just searched for 'search' and it got
114 hits.  When I first enter PPM it says:

PPM - Programmer's Package Manager version 3.1.
Copyright (c) 2001 ActiveState SRL. All Rights Reserved.

Entering interactive shell. Using Term::ReadLine::Stub as readline library.

It will probably quit working one of these days.
