Perl for Oracle9

Ben Win Lue has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Monks,

I had some trouble last week to get DBD-Oracle running on my XP system. The problem was, that ppm downloaded a oracle10 version with some dlls. One of my oracle9 client dlls was hidden that way by one of those new dlls. This lead to some weird behaviour. I solved the problem finally by renaming the new dll. My system works now as far as I tested it.
Is there a way to get a clean oracle9 DBD-Oracle version?

    If you have a compiler on your system (ie MS VC++), and the Oracle 9 header files, then just install the DBD::Oracle package directly from CPAN. (eg by using "cpan install DBD::Oracle" from the command prompt.)
