I am running some perl scripts on Linux that were previously used on Windows to see if they are working properly on Linux. I have been informed that all the modules/libraries for perl have not been installed yet. By running the scripts, i can see what I need to install to get the script working properly. I keep getting this error whenever I run a script:
install_driver(Oracle) failed: Can't locate DBD/Oracle.pm in @INC
Perhaps the DBD::Oracle perl module hasn't been fully installed,
or perhaps the capitalisation of 'Oracle' isn't right.
Available drivers: ExampleP, Proxy, Sponge, mysql.
From what I understand, Oracle is suppose to be a driver located with the other "available drivers". I tried to install DBD-Oracel from CSPAN, but when i go to install it on linux, it says The ORACLE_HOME environment variable must be set. This leads me to believe that I need to install Oracle on linux in order to download the Oracle driver properly, but the problem is that I can't have Oracle on Linux (says my boss).
So what I want to know is how do I get Oracle.pm and if there is a way for me to get it on linux (Suse) w/o having to download Oracle. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
