Perl, DBD::Oracle

Is it possible to use the Activestate Perl (hp_11.00.depot) binary with DBI and DBD::Oracle? I'm using Oracle 8.1.6. I've seen a lot of posts and some say it will not work and some say it will.

Re: Perl, DBD::Oracle

ActiveState usually builds threaded perls, which is calling for trouble on hpux/Oracle

Will my 5.8.0 port help you out?

Re: Perl, DBD::Oracle

Basic questions: 8.1.6/64 or 8.1.6/32?
Why can't you access my ITRC web page?
What C compiler, what version?

Re: Perl, DBD::Oracle

I don't know what version 32/64 of Oracle client and I installed it! Is there a command line way of telling? I was not seeing http(s) sorry, I see your page now. The C compiler I used was gcc 3.0.2. I got the gcc from the HP site.

Re: Perl, DBD::Oracle

oops!...the gcc I used is the 32 bit version, built from source.

Re: Perl, DBD::Oracle

Ah, at least that gcc version works. Not perfect, but still very good and rather stable. Remember to install 3.2 when available, as of 3.0.4, the GNU team has done a lot to improve gcc for pa-risc.

Oracle 32/64 can be checked with the 'file' command. See http://forums.itrc.hp.com/cm/QuestionAnswer/1,,0x8cbb3a7b3682d611abdb0090277a778c,00.html

if it shows ELF64, you have the 64bit port installed

Also try if http://forums.itrc.hp.com/cm/QuestionAnswer/1,,0xcb1036e69499d611abdb0090277a778c,00.html gives you enough additional info to continue.

If you cannot reach https://www.beepz.com/personal/merijn Steven is very interested in knowing /why/ not, and will for sure help. Steven and I are also quite often on his ITRC chat (https://www.beepz.com/itrc-chat/client/index.html) where he will resolve all beepz issues immediately (if he can)
