You're telling me this why? It doesn't alter my previous post. Any system running your code will need the Oracle client libraries installed, should they wish to run your code which makes use of DBD::Oracle.
My question is if I can mimic an install such that Perl has these libraries without actually installing the Oracle client. I'm already well aware that I need the libraries, because I knew that, and because the error told me so.
All of this was stated in my original post, but I apparently need to reiterate it to you, which is why I'm telling you this.
My first response to you was to clear up your confusion regarding a statement from someone else. You were confused as to someone elses use of the term "in the system" which I clarified for you. You don't have to reiterate anything to me.
In my second response I answered the points you raise in your question, since you felt the need to nitpick something I didn't say.
"I'm already well aware"
Seems contrary to
In your question. Being "well aware" one wouldn't have to make assumptions.
