on HP-UX (and probably anything unix-like) you don't need a full oracle
client installation to compile DBD::Oracle; a couple headers and the
libclntsh@(.sl|.so) are enough.
I don't want to install a working Oracle client on my PC at home; has
anybody tried to compile DBD::Oracle on cygwin using the minimum files
(as described above)
supposing one registers the needed *dll, it seems theoretically doable....
Re: DBD::Oracle on cygwin
Yep, make sure you're using the latest DBD::Oracle (1.17), I contributed a
couple of minor patches which avoid some misleading Unicode test failures on
Cygwin due to quirks with how it sets environment variables interacting with
Install Oracle Instant Client, Basic + SDK + SQL*Plus packages.
Set ORACLE_HOME environment variable to the _Windows_ style path to where you
unpacked instant client (e.g. c:\oracle\instantclient_10_2).
Include the _Cygwin_ style path to the Oracle directory in PATH (e.g.
Then set everything else as normal (ORACLE_USERID for a login for the tests,
NLS_LANG if necessary) and it should build and test without problems.
