The end of ActiveState?

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 01:24:19 +0000

In reply to PDK Dead?:

I just came to ActiveState to see if any new versions of PDF had been developed. Seeing that it is now dead, I think it's a sad end not only for PDK but for ActiveState as well. PDK was the only reliable way to wrap Perl apps into a cross-platform executable. Basically, PDK was the reason I was staying with ActiveState for any Perl development. I have a clear path forward, but unfortunately, it is not with ActiveState.

These upstream patches are in 5.24.3 and 5.26.1

In reply to Perl 2017 CVE's: CVE-2017-12883, CVE-2017-12837, CVE-2017-12814: released these patches in 5.26.1 and 5.24.3 Perl cores:

ActivePerl Enterprise 5.24.3 has been available since December 2017.
Community Edition/Business Edition ActivePerl 5.24 is also available.

5.18 is frozen

In reply to dbd-sqlite 1.56 build for perl 5.18 windows & linux 64-bit:

PPM build updates for 5.18 have been turned off. The last build cycle was run in June 2016. If you really need DBD-SQLite 1.56 you could upgrade to a new Perl, or attempt to build it from the source code.

I'll see if I can get together an FAQ with this sort of details.

Use DBD::ODBC instead

In reply to Perl command line interpreter has stopped working :

You're getting a Windows illegal request error with a threaded Perl and a module which the maintainer considers highly likely to be thread-unsafe.

Modern Perls should be used with the DBI/DBD database drivers.

Also, watch out that you are not mixing bitnesses. On a 64-bit Windows, you could have both 32-bit and 64-bit ODBC DSNs available. Use the one which matches the Perl.

Force install of Spreadsheet-Reader-ExcelXML

In reply to Can't install Spreadsheet-ParseExcel-Simple in ActivePerl- using PPM:

On Windows, open a command window and execute the following command:

ppm --force install Spreadsheet-Reader-ExcelXML

Which file threw that error?

Wed, 07 Mar 2018 21:58:46 +0000

In reply to DBD-mysql Problem:

Perl will report the line number and the file of an error of this sort.

If you don't see the full message in Komodo, try running the script from the command line.

My sentiments exactly. Please

In reply to Teapot? What Teapot?:

My sentiments exactly. Please don't promise Expect for Windows unless you intend to deliver it.

In reply to Inlne-Java-0.63 Perl loader can't find C:\Perl64\site\lib\auto\Inline\Java\JNI\JNI.dll:

I'm not clear yet what your conclusion is. Will upgrading to 5.26 resolve the problem or are changes not yet available required?


Seems to be a broken makefile

In reply to Alien-wxWidgets 0.68 in PPM is incomplete:

The working 0.67 applied a lot of patches; none of the latest versions do.

I also note that there are no test reports for 0.68 or 0.69 (or any version at all) for 5.24.2 or 5.24.3 on Windows; or for 5.22.3, or 5.22.4. The only result for 5.22.2 is a failure.;maxver=1

The latest version 0.69 isn't building for any ActivePerl and seems to be incompatible with the PPM build systems.

Unfortunately, I can't suggest the repo from WxPerl. That hasn't been updated since 2013 and has nothing for newer Perls.

If you have a Business Edition license, you can manually download the older versions
but a PPM client can only pull down the newest available version.

It would seem to be incompatible without tweaks

In reply to Inlne-Java-0.63 Perl loader can't find C:\Perl64\site\lib\auto\Inline\Java\JNI\JNI.dll:
Inline-Java after 0.59 adds "." in @INC if the Perl version is 5.26 or higher, and does not adjust for older Perls assuming that they all have the old behaviour.

This is not entirely correct, as 5.22 and 5.24 late versions both attempted to deal with the @INC security problem as well.
The changes to "base" were rolled back, but other changes were retained.

Upgrading to 5.26 should fix the problem.
Local patches to affected modules could also fix the issue until you can upgrade.
