when i try to connect remotely i get the folowing error

C:\>perl remote.pl
DBD::oracle initialisation failed: Can't locate object method "driver" via packa
ge "DBD::oracle" (perhaps you forgot to load "DBD::oracle"?) at C:/Perl/site/lib
/DBI.pm line 747.

I also went to ppm and install > install DBD::Oracle and DBI is already installed i verified it
The first problem is a missing semicolon after use DBI.
What is the code for remote.pl

Nevermijd, I got it working. It was a installation problem.
