So what you're saying is that I misunderstood the context of your question? I know there can be hostility baked into a response like yours. You say that isn't the case however. Of course, you knew what you mean, so why didn't I?

"Which client, the Oracle client, the person who pays you to write software?"

The client I've referenced in my posts has always been the client that I defined in my initial post: "...a client to connect to an Oracle database separate from the client."

...

Anyhoo, thank you for answering my question. I think my solution is going to be to install Perl on the server, and run the scripts over there since I can't install Oracle on the client side. There's a limited version of Perl installed right now, and it doesn't include all of the base modules, but it's easier, given my limitations, to do that instead of installing Oracle on the client. Licensing is the entire reason I'm in this predicament in the first place, so I'd like to avoid problems with it. :-P

    Nope.

    "Of course, you knew what you mean, so why didn't I?"

    Actually, you still seem confused.

    "I think my solution is going to be to.."

    There are other solutions to this problem, but since you seem to lack context (see links in previous posts) or the understanding that mimicking something isn't the same thing as actually having access to something I'll leave you to your current work around.

      What would these other solutions be if you wouldn't mind?

      EDIT: Also, I'm not actually going to be deploying this, so maybe packaging isn't out of the question. It's just being used for testing to verify files generated by our system against the database.
