### NY Lost Funds

 Caelum yes namedrisk f00li5h thanks anyway for your patiece i appreciate it i think i will take a nap and sleep im blocked to work this out :/ Epilog any version? Caelum Epilog: I don't know if it matters on windows or not, on *nix it would have to be the version DBD::Oracle was built withEpilog: I'd try 8ibut a later version might work Epilog okhow can I find out?don't have any sort of ldd in windows Caelum yeah, I was thinking that... f00li5h namedrisk: good plan miky ola Caelum Epilog: see if there's some sort of readme file with the ppm, try 8i, if all else fails build your own DBD::Oracle with mingw (in which case you just need the mingw gcc in your path and dmake) action Caelum home & Caelum home & Epilog Caelum, this is frying my brain Caelum Epilog: I have a lot of experience with that (brain being fried) and I can attest to that it sucks greatly :( Epilog Caelum, it need it to be oracle 6i. Old as hell Caelum Epilog: the client version shouldn't matter, newer clients connect to older oracle versions Epilog Caelum, can only see the 10.2.0.3 and 10.1.0.5gotta try harder Caelum you can try one of thosebut beware that once you install a version of oracle client, it's really hard to remove it and install another version....although a complete deinstall might work... thrig our DBA maintain different trees for each client versionyou set ORACLE_HOME and whatnot to select the one you want Khisanth not everyone has one of those! Caelum :) f00li5h everyone has an ORACLE_HOME and an ORACLE_SID action Khisanth is desperately looking for one ... Khisanth is desperately looking for one ... f00li5h i have 2 just incase Epilog f00li5h, The problem is that I already have the client for 6i f00li5h Epilog: why is that a problem? Caelum Epilog: if you already have the client, just build DBD::Oracle... f00li5h oracle's stuff all installs into versioned folders Epilog f00li5h, but DBD::Oracle seems to be complaining about a missing entry point anabain can anybody explain me why this: if ($modi =~ !/\\emph{(.*)?$linia(.*)?}/g) {code} yields this error?: Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at script.pl line 34 f00li5h so you get ora/10.1.1/binanabain: because \$linia is undefined Epilog f00li5h, so your best bet is f00li5h (given that it's the only variabiable in that string)
