Subject: Binary version of DBI, DBD-ODBC, DBD-Oracle, DBD-DB2 available (back up with new versions)

ftp.esoftmatic.com should be back up now... I had a UPS die badly and since
died, the original server stopped working.

Please let me know on the dbi-users mailing list if you have issues.

Also, since the original announcement, I have upgraded to DBI version 1.40,
DBD-Oracle 1.15 and added DBD-DB2.

Also note that if you get DBD-xxx from my site, I strongly recommend you get
DBI from my site too. At the very least, make sure you are running the same
DBI that I'm running.

I've restructured a bit and am basing the directory structure upon the
perl version, not the AS build number. 808 reports as 5.8.2, so

ftp://ftp.esoftmatic.com/outgoing/DBI/5.8.2

Contains all the 5.8.2 specific versions. You may directly download all the
files in that directory (say: c:\tmp) and run the following commands from
your command prompt:

ppm install c:\tmp\DBI.ppd
ppm install c:\tmp\DBD-ODBC.ppd
ppm install c:\tmp\DBD-Oracle.ppd
ppm install c:\tmp\DBD-DB2.ppd


The following command lines should also work for those directly connected to
the net...see ActiveState's documentation on PPM regarding proxies, etc, if
this doesn't work:

ppm install ftp://ftp.esoftmatic.com/outgoing/DBI/5.8.2/DBI.ppd
ppm install ftp://ftp.esoftmatic.com/outgoing/DBI/5.8.2/DBD-Oracle.ppd
ppm install ftp://ftp.esoftmatic.com/outgoing/DBI/5.8.2/DBD-ODBC.ppd
ppm install ftp://ftp.esoftmatic.com/outgoing/DBI/5.8.2/DBD-DB2.ppd
 
I *still* have plans for building more modules, but I haven't gotten
to them yet. I've just made it easier to build and put them up on my
site, so that's a step. Some of the other modules require database
software, which may be an issue. I do plan on looking into some
obvious modules, but...my time is limited.

Regards,

Jeff
