in reply to Can't use DBD::Oracle if LD_LIBRARY_PATH Not Set In Environment

What does it say if you unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH and you run:
ldd /usr/perl5/5.16.2/lib/site_perl/5.16.2/sun4-solaris/auto/DBD/Oracl +e/

If the results point to locations that don't exist, then likely your DBD::Oracle was compiled on a different system where libraries were in a different place. Now you have to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to specify where they are on your system.

Update: Or compile DBD::Oracle on your current system so that the file knows where it's libraries are. On HP-UX you can use chatr to change the paths to libraries in a .so file...don't know if the same exists on solaris (don't think so). If you're really brave, maybe you can edit the paths in the .so binary yourself :-)

[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: geany supports ctags.
[Discipulus]: a good compromise can be my ($need, $opts_ref) = @_ a scalar and an hash reference
[Discipulus]: see you monks!
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, let me get this sub rewritten, then I will look into how to use ctags in geany. Deal? 8)
[shmem]: Discipulus: yeah, that might eventually prepare the path for OO ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: See you, Discipulus.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: that's up to you. I only wanted to show you a path that might be more comforting than command line grep ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I don't think any of my modules could be converted to OO. They are too procedural.
