Hello,

I want to include BerkeleyDB to my perl script.

I add a line in my script as follows:  use BerkeleyDB.

When I am running the script an error mentioning that "Can't locate BerkeleyDB in ......"

The BerkeleyDB is already installed in my windows box.


So how to solve this problem or how to add the library in order to use the berkelyDB functions.

Hi nabilhammoud,

My Perl experience is more with Linux than Windows, but I expect the principles are the same.  If it's not installed where all the "core" Perl modules are installed, then you have to put a "use lib" statement before the "use BerkeleyDB;" statement.
I think the "use lib" statement should contain the path to the parent folder of the BerkeleyDB folder.
For example, I use this in Linux:
    use lib "/home/myusername/perl/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8";
Your path will be different of course.  I'm not sure whether you will use forward or back slashes, since you're using Windows.

Hi again nabilhammoud,

So the first thing to do is to find where your BerkeleyDB module is installed.

Have you found it?  If you can't find it, maybe it's not installed properly, in which case, try installing it again, and test your script again, without the "use lib..." initially.

Failing that, find it, then follow the instructions in my previous post.
