I found the no-longer-supported page about downloading all of the plates.
I installed (I think!) ActivePerl 5.28.1
I found the zip file downloadplates-4.4.3.zip
I found the instructions file and am going through it and I remember DOS from long ago...
In the instructions - These steps:
1. This is done.
>>>You must have perl installed. I recommend you run the active perl msi
windows package installer 5.8.x or higher. Default settings will be fine.
You can try to download it from here. http://www.activestate.com/activeperl/ .
2. After you install active perl, you will need to install the xml package.
I do not know where to get the xml package (???)
The file "ActivePerl-5.28.1.0000-MSWin32-x64-865dc3eb-packages.txt" has these lines in it:
P XML-Parser 188.8.131.52 2.44
P XML-Simple 2.24 2.24
Making me think maybe it was included in the install of 5.28.1.
But in this next step in the instructions file:
>>> type "ppm install xml-xpath" without the quotes. This will install the required perl xml parser. You need only do this once.
Well, all of the files are in c:\plates\downloader
So crom command.com I do a CD to get there. Then the command below yields the error below.
C:\plates\Downloader>ppm install xml-xpath
'ppm' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
SO I cant get to the next steps.
What do I do? THANKS!
