it's really more about the freedom to be able to install any module from CPAN I may need without being held hostage by the lack of a package than about compiling perl.

I have found package support poor and to date I cannot make DBD::Sybase/Oracle work on anything above 5.6.0

> ppm> install DBD::Oracle

I get:

Searching for 'DBD::Oracle' returned no results. Try a broader search +first.
evn after adding the esoftmatic repository that olivierp pointed me to... and if I download the files myself and install them e.g. /ppm install DBD-Sybase.ppd/, trying to use I get errors:
perl -le ' use DBI; use DBD::Sybase; '
The context allocation routine failed. The following problem caused the failure: Invalid context version.
it is SO painful to work in w2k! ah!!!

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
