Activestate Perl and DBD-Pg?

P: n/a
Anyone using Activestate Perl and DBD-Pg?
I am using perl 5.8.3 ppm does not seem to work. I downloaded the DBD-Pg
..zip file I found through google but ppm could not seem to install that.
Any suggestions?

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to ma*******@postgresql.org)

There has been little Win support in DBD::Pg the last few versions, but
we hope to modify this in the next release, which should work with
version 8 of PostgreSQL on Windows. The zip file you found is quite old
and may not install anymore, but if you really need it, try posting the
specific errors it gives you to the pgsql-interfaces list.

I moved my script to a linux box and it works fine.
I am still using an old version of Postgres for our call center app
here. I have not had any reall issues with and we have not had the time
to take it down. I guess I will have a reason to move to 8 when it comes
out.
