DBD::Oracle 1.23 Released

DBD::Oracle (1.23) has been released. DBD::Oracle is the Perl module that works with the DBI module to provide access to Oracle databases.

I included the tables, code and workaround in this post.

I have just managed to get DBD::Oracle to successfully compile, install, and test with the 11.1.0.6.0 Instant Client (IC) on a Linux (32bit) OS. It seems Oracle, in its wisdom, has changed the folder structure yet again, so to get it to compile, try this….
