in reply to Install problems with DBD::InterBase

I'm experiencing some problems with DBD::InterBase (the Firebird 2.1 driver).

If you want a driver for Firebird, I'd recommend to use DBD::Firebird instead. I know that for a long time, the interbase driver was recommended for firebird users, but the new firebird driver has the advantage of being maintained.

    Hi Moritz,

    Wow, DBD::Firebird, amazing, I never knew such a beast existed.

    I'll check it out.

    Thanks very much.

    Regards

    Steve

    Hi Moritz,

    I tried this on my home machine and got the following failure:

        Hi Moritz,

        Thanks for this. Well I can see:

        If omitted, $user defaults to the ISC_USER environment variable (or, failing that, the DBI-standard DBI_USER environment variable). Similarly, $password defaults to ISC_PASSWORD (or DBI_PASS). If $dbname is blank, that is, "dbi:Firebird:dbname=", the environment variable ISC_DATABASE is substituted.

        For using with the connect statement, but I don't see anything for using with install and it's cpan -i DBD::Firebird which is falling over not the connect statement.

        But it's true that cpan -i DBD::InterBase asks a lot of questions, the answers to which it presumably put into environment vars, and you might expect DBD::Firebird to need the same info. Am I missing something?

        Thanks again for your help.

        Regards

        Steve
