    There may be several files called in different distributions. If what you want to accomplish is to access an Oracle database from perl, you'll need DBI and DBD::Oracle. The latter does come with a file

    Yes: there are many ways to install modules but the easiest is proably "perl -MCPAN -e 'shell'" and then typing "install DBD::Oracle" at the cpan prompt.

    More on installing modules can be found in tachyon's Tutorial: A Guide to Installing Modules

    Update: I'm not one to tell people, in a thread, why I've -- them, but I believe it is important this time - please stop starting threads with one name titles (this is at least the third time). This is not very discriptive and makes it harder for those using Search or Super Search, who might have the same problem as you.

    Getting DBD::Oracle is easy. It is available from CPAN. Building it is a little complicated because it is a binary module. Getting the headers and libraries required to compile it is a challenge. You effectively need to install Oracle database server, or at least the headers and libraries out of the database server.
