The “Sesame Street” Version of DBD::Oracle (1.23) has been released.
You can find it at CPAN DBD::Oracle.
DBD::Oracle is the Perl module that works with the DBI module to provide access to Oracle databases. It is maintained by me, John Scoles, under the auspices of The Pythian Group as open source/free software.
This release is largely a maintenance release that fixes a number of bugs.
New stuff includes the ability to fetch Oracle embedded types directly into an oracle object; a big thank you goes out to Tomas Pokorny for that patch.
Also, UTF8 support has been expanded and cleaned up for BLOBs and
execute_array and thanks go out to Milo van der Leij, David Mansfield for most of the work on this.
Also a big thanks Alex Buttery, Jim McCullars, Charles Jardine, Eric Simon, and Chris Underhill, who helped out with some clean up of the code, READMEs, and the POD.
I have also now added two private statement functions
ora_stmt_type which will get the OCI type name and type for the currently prepared statement.
