You're telling me this why? It doesn't alter my previous post. Any system running your code will need the Oracle client libraries installed, should they wish to run your code which makes use of DBD::Oracle.

    My question is if I can mimic an install such that Perl has these libraries without actually installing the Oracle client. I'm already well aware that I need the libraries, because I knew that, and because the error told me so.

    All of this was stated in my original post, but I apparently need to reiterate it to you, which is why I'm telling you this.

      My first response to you was to clear up your confusion regarding a statement from someone else. You were confused as to someone elses use of the term "in the system" which I clarified for you. You don't have to reiterate anything to me.

      In my second response I answered the points you raise in your question, since you felt the need to nitpick something I didn't say.

      "I'm already well aware"

      Seems contrary to

      "I assume"

      In your question. Being "well aware" one wouldn't have to make assumptions.

        I appreciate your first response, because I needed the clarification.

        Your hostility in "You're telling me this why?" is what prompted my nitpicking. God forbid I respond to your clarification with further clarification. My question hadn't (and still hasn't) really been answered yet, so I was reiterating the fact that it is indeed the client running the script. It was an attempt to acknowledge your answer and effectively say, "okay, I understand and here's why".

        If we want to nitpick, though, "I'm already well aware" is referring to being well aware that I need libraries to run this script. "I assume" is referring to assuming that I am running into this issue because Oracle isn't installed on the client. They aren't contrary to each other because they're statements about separate topics.
