raventheone has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

hello all

i have the problem that i am not able to get a simple perl script doing a database connection and query. here the error i get:

install_driver(ODBC) failed: Can't locate DBD/ODBC.pm in @INC (you may need to install the DBD::ODBC module) (@INC contains: /Library/Perl/5.18/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Library/Perl/5.18 /Network/Library/Perl/5.18/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Network/Library/Perl/5.18 /Library/Perl/Updates/5.18.2/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Library/Perl/Updates/5.18.2 /System/Library/Perl/5.18/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/5.18 /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.18/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.18 .) at (eval 4) line 3. Perhaps the DBD::ODBC perl module hasn't been fully installed, or perhaps the capitalisation of 'ODBC' isn't right. Available drivers: DBM, ExampleP, File, Gofer, Proxy, SQLite, Sponge. at testperldb.pl line 10.

i am running mac os mojave 10.14.2

the db connection works using "Azure Data Studio"

any help is deeply appreciated
