there is a problem with connecting oracle db. when i try to establish a connection by a sample script..given below

#use strict;
use Oracle;
#use DBI;

my $dbh = DBI->connect('DBI:Oracle:dsn','scott','tiger') or die "can't connect to the database";

my $sth = $ddh->prepare('select * from emp') or die 'u r dead';;

my $result= $sth->execute();

while(@arr= $result->fetchrow_array()){
$eno = $arr[0];
print $eno;

i got the follwoing error..

Re: [rajjj] problem with dbi and dbd installation

You shouldn't be using a module called Oracle.pm, you should be using DBI.pm.

It sounds like your versions of DBI and DBD::Oracle weren't installed properly. How did you install them?
