Im a newbie to PERL scripting. Im just trying to exectue some simple PERL scripts. The question is how to connect to a database using an ODBC connection (say i want to insert a row into an MS access table). I have not specifically installed PERL or APACHE . it came along with ORACLE installation and it is working fine. Do i need to install ActivePerl inorder for me to work with ODBC(I came across this comment on a website)
Secondly I tried to install ActivePerl and during the installation process it is asking for me to
Add PERL to the PATH Environment Variable
Create PERL file extension association
Im not sure what this is, i fear if i click yes, my existing connection with the Apache Web Server may lose.
Finally Im using Windows 2000, will it make a difference for any of the above conditions
