In your string 'dbi:Oracle:db', the characters 'db' need
to be replaced with your Oracle SID. For example, if
your database's SID is 'TEST' (e.g.: you connect to the
database with "sqlplus system/manager@TEST"), then
your code should read 'dbi:Oracle:TEST'.

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