DBD::Oracle module for the MacPerl.  But you can use Proxy.  Someone on this list has
accomplished this.  I don't know how but they was able to do it.

Thanks.  I am aware of the DBI and DBD::Oracle modules but that is as far as it goes.  I
have no clue how to use them.  I assume the documentation will have something on them
when I install it.

I saw an offer the other day from O'Reilly to get Unix Perl with several books on CD
(1800+ pages) for 149.00.  I like this since I get all the books I believe I will need
plus the CDs with sample code, utilities, etc.  Do you think this is a good deal or do
you know about something better?

Thanks for the pointers!
