RE: Perl in 10.2.0.3

Dhandapani,

I recently went thru this exercise and after a while was finally able to
get the Perl DBI/DBD modules for Oracle to work. We are on Solaris 10
(Opteron 64 servers) using 10g (10.2.0.3). Here are some guidelines you
many find useful.

  * Perl for Solaris is shipped as a 32bit version which is fine for
most Perl apps. Leave the default install alone (/usr/perl5) as this is
used by the operating system and could make your OS become unusable if
tampered with. Instead, you will need to compile another 64 bit version
of perl. I first did this in my home directory and later installed it
for production use in /opt/perl5 (/usr/local/bin/perl5 is another
alternate you can use).
  * After building and installing the local version of Perl, create an
environment file that points to that version. That means, /usr/bin
should come last in your PATH. Also, be sure to unset/reset any perl
library and LD_LIBRARY_PATHs to point to the newly installed version
ahead of the system installed one.
  * Begin installing the DBI/DBD modules. DBI is rather straight forward
but the DBD test is where I had the issue. This was resolved once I
recompiled a 64 bit version of Perl and made sure it was placed ahead of
the installed version. Recent your PERL5LIB to point to your 64 bit
version.

I think I still have instructions so email me off-line and I can send
them to you.

Kind regards,
Chris Langston

Yes your correct..Do the Perl supports 64-bit Operating systems

Kinldy help me on how is should get it work on Oracle 64-bit Solaris
Operating system

While the DBI.pm is present in both directories specified below, the
Perl @INC array is pointing to non existent directories.

When I specify Including the Oracle directories (command line perl -I
$ORACLE_HOME/perl/lib/site_perl/5.8.3/sun4-solaris-thread-multi -I $ORAC
LE_HOME/perl/lib/5.8.3 create_ddl.pl, 
 
I get the error:

The other error is due to the perl istallation pointing at the wrong
include directories.  This tells it where to look for the perl modules
(*.pm) files, and other things.  It is set when perl is installed on a
computer.  You can add include libraries to perl with the "-I"
parameter, and can have as many of them as you want (look at the command
perl -I $ORACLE_HOME/perl/lib/site_perl/5.8.3/sun4-solaris-thread-multi
-I $ORACLE_HOME/perl/lib/5.8.3 create_ddl.pl, there are 2 -I
parameters).
Also,
[bash]perl -V

The real question is does PERL support 64-bit operating systems?

We use PERL all the time on 64-bit systems with Oracle the only
problematic part is trying to get Perl, DBI and DBD to compile on a
64bit system.

Once it is up and running I have never run into any issues with 32bit vs
64 bit Oracle and PERL.

cheers
