in reply to Oracle 10g client not working with Perl 5.5

What version of Solaris are you running that is preventing you from installing the 12c client? What is the value of the NLS_LANG environment variable?

Sunfreeware is some sort of subscription service now IIRC, https://www.opencsw.org is an alternative. As someone who spends most of their day job on Solaris, with Oracle 12c, make life easy on yourself. Perl 5.5 is old and not maintained/supported. Build your own perl, install it to something like /app/applicationNameHere. Install DBI and DBD::Oracle the way you would any other perl module.

    "...Build your own perl..."

    As i vaguely remember 10g as well as 11g come with their own Perl.

    If so the OP will have to maintain/take care of some versions of Perl: the one that comes with Oracle, the one that will surely be on his box and the one he compiles for his own purposes, right?

    I wish him well.

    Best regards and have a nice Father's Day, Karl

      Oracle has shipped with some version of perl for a long time, it's used for their tools and some scripts which get shipped as part of/updates to the product. For reference Oracle 12C ships with perl 5.14.1 (from 2011). This is maintained by Oracle under the release of the database product. I don't even bother using it.

        Thanks and best regards, Karl
