English Culture/popping

Question
What does the gerund "popping" mean, as in "I wanted to see how you were popping along."?

Answer
Never heard it put like that.

''I'm Popping over to the shops'' as in ''I'm Going to the shops'' is one I hear commonly used.
It could be a regional slang as you have it.
Also common in youth culture of the 90s is ''Popping a pill'' is another as in ''I'm going to a rave and popping a extacy pill''.
