DBD::Oracle is a Perl module with Oracle database driver for the DBI module.


use DBI;

$dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:Oracle:$dbname", $user, $passwd);

$dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:Oracle:host=$host;sid=$sid", $user, $passwd);

# See the DBI module documentation for full details

# for some advanced uses you may need Oracle type values:
use DBD::Oracle qw(:ora_types);

DBD::Oracle is a Perl module which works with the DBI module to provide access to Oracle databases.


What's New in This Release:
execute_array has been fixed to comply with the DBI standard, will not throw a Perl warning on undef values in Tuples; and will take the ora_array_chunk_size DB handle attribute.
A few other little bugs dealing with compatibility with Oracle 8 has been fixed.
A warning in 26exe_array.t has been suppressed.
Support has been added for array context aware execute_for_fetch.
An incompatibility in Makefile.PL with ExtUtils::MM_Unix v1.50 has been fixed (invoked byExtUtils::MakeMaker).
The POD has been updated to reflect that OCI after 9.2 no longer strips trailing spaces.
