Yes. Something reverted the present module Text::Reform, 1.11, back to
1.10. I don't know what, but now ppm will no longer work. So I'll hack
my way around it.
Locate the Text/Reform.pm file. Make the file readable, open it in your
text editor. Check that it is indeed version 1.10. Select everything.
Next open the source from Text::Reform 1.10 on CPAN in your browser
Select everything, and paste into your text editor, replacing everything
that was there. Save the file.
Now it's updated to 1.11, and ppm will work again normally.
