Adding CPAN repository in the list of repositories available for PPM

P: 55
Hi,
I have seen that some modules which are available on CPAN are not listed in ActiveState repository. So those are not available to install by using ppm. I find out the way of adding adding repository in ppm given below,

Way to add repository:
To use these package repositories you start PPM and at the prompt type

set repository NAME URL

e.g: set repository JENDA http://Jenda.Krynicky.cz/perl

Before you exit PPM you should save the changes to the configuration by issuing the command 'set save'.

My questions are:
1. What is the URL for CPAN repository
2. Can we able to install the modules from CPAN repository using ppm


Thank you.

1. http://cpan.org/modules/by-module/
2. I would assume so as it is just another repository to point to. I don't have tons of experience with PPM. On the cpan.org site there are also instructions on how to install modules for each OS as well.
