    For those of you using ActiveState's ppm, detailed instructions are given in the tarball's win32/INSTALL file. Since you probably won't have much use for said tarball, I've included the lowdown here. If you need more details... I guess you'll have to downlaod that tarball and take a look at the file yourself.

    First up install Astro::FITS::Header by running:

    ppm install Astro-FITS-Header

    Then install the OpenGL, PGPLOT and PDL modules from the uwinnipeg rep by running:

    For perl 5.8:
      ppm install http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/OpenGL.ppd
      ppm install http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/PGPLOT.ppd
      ppm install http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/PDL.ppd

    Or for perl 5.10:
      ppm install http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/PPMPackages/10xx/OpenGL.ppd
      ppm install http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/PPMPackages/10xx/PGPLOT.ppd
      ppm install http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/PPMPackages/10xx/PDL.ppd

    (Note that the ActiveState ppm for PDL currently lacks some of the functionality that is available in the above PDL ppm packages from uwinnipeg.)

    The install file also contains more detailed installation instructions for Windows users if you want to customize stuff, so for a different take than what I juts gave here (above, in the original post), check it out!
