PSCI_1I am relatively new to Perl, primary experience through Windows NT
with limited knowledge of UNIX.  I have been instructed to identify a
corporate standard version of Perl and upgrade our desktops and servers. For
servers we have NT, HP/UX and SunSolaris.  We run Oracle 7 & 8, and DB2 UDB.
Is it naive of me to think that I can have one standard build of perl for
the corporation?  I was thinking of having one, with DBD's for all our
databases included...meaning the DB2 DBD would be installed even on a server
running only Oracle; it wouldn't be used it would just be there such that
there was a standard configuration.  Or should I have multiple
configurations, one per OS platform and even perhaps DBMS?

I saw in the dbi-archives warnings against mixing Oracle 7 & 8
implementations.  Yet saw other items indicating users having both Oracle
and Oracle8 DBD's installed.  Can someone clarify this for me, can I have
both versions of the Oracle DBD or do I have to match the Oracle client
and/or DB level?

Also, when looking at the ActiveState ActivePerl5.6 build 623 PPM packages,
it appears that the DBD:Oracle is not available for Solaris and no mention
of UNIX whatsoever.

Should I be looking somewhere else (CPAN) instead?  I've never done Make's
before...and well you know, it's kind of a fear of the unknown....ok...I'm
chicken  :-)

TIA

Just an answer to one of your questions.  Activestate distribution is for
Windows.  For unix all modules are stored in www.cpan.org

ActiveState has added distributions for Linux and Solaris 2.6 since at least
Build 611 though I don't think I have seen anyone here that is using them
yet.

For most UNIXs, building Perl and supporting modules is very straight
forward.  You'd probably be best advised to use ActiveState's Perl for
Win32, Intel Solaris, and Intel Linux and build a standard tarball for at
same perl and module version levels to distribute to the other platforms you
have to support.

Who's show is SN? Steve's or Leo's?

Maybe I'm in a world all to myself, but when I listen to the excellent SN podcasts, I want to hear STEVE, not Leo. But especially in the past few shows, it seems Leo will repeatedly interrupt Steve in the middle of a sentence that I want to hear the rest of. I consider this very rude of Leo. Steve is making a point that I (we) want to hear, then looses his train of thought after Leo barges in and asks something. It...
