DBI module missing
Posted by CornishDeity (CornishDeity), 18 June 2006Hi,
It didn't take long. Having spent most of the day trying to get this sorted I have decided to ask for some advice.
I am trying to connect to a DB from perl, and it would seem that I need DBI to do this. Unfortunately from the box (and DB) that I am workign on this isn't installed. Is it easy to do. I have had a browse on the web and haven't really got anywhere. The database is an oracle 126.96.36.199.0 and the box is HPUX.
I do have access to other boxes with it on, but just copying across DBI.pm doesn't work.
ANy ideas gratefully received.
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 18 June 2006Briefly, you need to download from the CPAN, unpack and the unpack directory do something like
You then need to do the same thing for an appropriate DBD module.
There will be either a README or/and INSTALL file in the directories to help you through the detail and any HPUX specific stuff ... and being Perl there's more than one way of doing it so it will tell you about other ways too
Posted by CornishDeity (CornishDeity), 18 June 2006Thanks Graham. I've been cheeky and gone in the back door, via another box with DBI on it. Hopefully I get get it sorted on that box eventually, but in the mean time I have somethign to practise on.
Thanks Graham, a sterling response time
