in reply to Multiple DB Connection Problem

I think its the connection string. The following gives the same error:
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use DBI; my $dbconnectionstring = q{"dbi:Oracle:host=;sid=dev;","querye +ditor","editor"}; our $conn2 = DBI->connect($dbconnectionstring); die($DBI::errstr) unless $conn2;
You need to parse your connection string to extract dsn, user and password and pass then as individual arguments to DBI's connect method:
use Text::CSV_XS; my $csv = Text::CSV_XS->new({ sep_char => ",", quote_char => '"', }); $csv->parse($dbconnectionstring); my ($dsn,$user,$pass) = $csv->fields(); our $conn2 = DBI->connect($dsn, $user, $pass); die($DBI::errstr) unless $conn2;

    Snoopy..Thanks for the suggestion.

    Is there any other way to do this multiple DB connection without using "use Text::CSV_XS;" module ?
      You could split $dbconnectionstring on commas or if it were me, I would store the information in 3 different columns.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
