  • Um... PPM _is_ cross platform. The problem facing doing a large binary build is making sure that it'll work on each OS, OS version, architecture combination. There's a _whole_ bunch of work involved there along with the problems around needing to package up underlying libraries (libgd, etc). Not impossible, but tricky.

    • I know PPM is cross platform, but it isn't point and click and isn't a GUI that allows you to search and select installs. It also shows you all the installation text instead of to a log or similar, when the user only needs to know errors and necessary interaction questions.
      • The newest PPM (version 4) that comes with AS Perl has a GUI. It will not be available outside AS Perl, however.
