DBD::Oracle perl module hasn't been fully installed, os=Solaris 2.8, perl=5.8.7

Posted on 2006-03-30
Last Modified: 2008-01-16

I'm running a script that queries an oracle 9.2.0 DB.

I'm using DBI and DBD::Oracle.

The DBD install is not functioning properly because it doesn't suppor this version of Oracle.

I've hunted everywhere for previous versions of the file which I've found.

But I'm unable to find the header files the documentation specifies needing to install the module.

Does anyone know a perl module that I can use in place of the DBI DBD combo or where I can look for the header files I need?

thanks, Sugarfreeless
