in reply to Same Script different OS

Thanks for the Feedback.

The script will connect to the database and works fine if the SQL is successful. It just won't trap errors without crashing. This makes it a useless environment for me :-(.

Unfortunately changing windows settings doesn't make any difference.

I downloaded a binary DBD::Oracle winxp driver so that could be the problem but I don't have any alternative. I guess its natures way of telling me to stick to Unix.

    You have a serious problem, one the DBI developers should know about. I'd advise you to subscribe to the dbi-users mailing list, and describe the problem there. (I think Tim Bunce is responsible for DBD::Oracle, so you'll probably get a reply from him.)

[davido]: Exactly: SoPW. This isn't going to be solved easily in the CB.
[james28909]: in need "yesterday" and so on, to be absolute like "1" or "31"
[stevieb]: ...and throw some of your existing code into the equation as well, just so readers know you've given a try at it ;)
[james28909]: ok
[stevieb]: davido thanks for the link ;) I was being the typical lazy
[davido]: date parsing is hard. The more examples you can provide of the input (within reason) and expected output, the better.
[stevieb]: agreed. That's why I said at least a half-dozen. If enough of the different formats are present, the date/time folk may not have to request more. If they do, then at least there was a decent base to start with
[stevieb]: I do date and time transformations in both Perl and Python, but not frequently enough to not have to search for the format params etc ;)
