Subject: New in DBI

Hi all, I'm new in DBI and I'm really stuck, some can explain me this code:

use DBI;

my $dbh = DBI->connect( 'dbi:Oracle:db',
) or die "$DBI::errstr";

its supposed I get a connection with that ?

'dbi:Oracle:db' -> this is the driver and the database associated,
where I can config the host where the Oracle DB resides ?

Please excuse if my question is stupid but I search in the docs and
nothing about this is explained....
