It looks like the DBI and DBD packages together have an Oracle interface.
$dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:Oracle:$dbname", $user, $passwd);
$dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:Oracle:host=$host;sid=$sid", $user, $passwd);
It is not part of the "standard" modules. If using ActiveState's ActivePerl,
download with PPM. Else download with CPAN.
