in reply to Connect to remote Oracle DB

Yeah, you'll need Oracle installed on your local computer... at least the client part. DBI just acts as a bridge between Perl and the Oracle client and when you install DBD::Oracle it will look for your Oracle client to compile against. It's a little bit of a pain to setup, but if you know anything about Oracle it's not too hard. I think you can get a free-for-personal-use version of Oracle (including the client) from oracle.com.
