in reply to Oracle Character Sets

At my job we're using almost exactly that combination: Perl 5.8.0, DBI 1.32, DBD::Oracle 1.12, and some Oracle databases with the WE8ISO8859P1 character set. So I don't think you will see any problems with either of these character sets.

But since you're changing the character set anyway, is there a reason you're not going with utf-8?

    Thanks for the information. I honestly don't know why we aren't changing to utf-8. I asked a couple of people and didn't get a good answer. I think they are going to go back and do some more discussion.
