No longer convinced this is a perl problem

    OK guys, thanks for all the help. This is probably due to incompetence on my part as an admin (no formal training after all ;)). Certain scripts are running fine with 'strict' and it *appears to be user dependent* - I will persue this now as an admin problem not a perl one.
    This has been a real experience posting here, hope I can put back in at some point

    The only other thing I can suggest is downloading the Solaris version appropriate Perl binaries and install via pkgadd. That's how I've installed on my 5 Sun boxes. I had no other problems except the Web Administrator snafu.

    They are available at the Freeware for Solaris site.

      or if you're going down this route, get the SiePerl distribution of Perl 5.6.1 for Solaris. It comes with the DBI module (amongst others) built.
