I don't think you absolutely need the DBD::Oracle line. DBI should load the correct module when you connect.

My personal solution has been to hide connection details in a module which always gets installed in The Right Place, has a home for tests and makes scripts clear and concise with subs like this

sub setup_environment { my $server = get_server_name(); for my $env ( %{$environment{$server}} ) { $ENV{$env} = $environment{$server}->{$env}; } return scalar keys %{$environment{$server}}; }
I use it to cache database handles and such. It's not your perfect solution, but it works for me.

Sometimes I can think of 6 impossible LDAP attributes before breakfast.
