( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Another angle I was thinking about, to solving this problem, was installing perl from scratch, on one of my "non-work" PCs as an experiment. However, it looks like there are two options to install Perl - Active State and Strawberry. I have windows at home - well, windows home & work. So, if my goal is to easily install modules - like the DBD JDBC, it seems like Active State is the way to go if you have windows. My home PC would have the a more recent version of Perl - with active state, would it be as simple as double clicking on the PPM batch, doing a search on the DBD JDBC module, clicking on install, and installing the module? I know with other modules in the past - that is all that I had to do. When I took this approach, on my work computer(which is using an older version of Perl) - I didn't see the DBD::OJBC module.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
