I'm very new to Perl, and am trying to install the modules I need to work with an Oracle database using Windows 2000. So far I've managed to install DBI, but I've had no luck with the two other modules I need, DBD::Oracle and Date::Calc.
I've downloaded the correct (I hope) zip files and extracted them to my C drive. When I try to install them, tho, I get this error message:
I am also new at this but I resolved the problem you described below by setting my Enviornment variables for the following:
HTTP_proxy = http://(your proxy server address and port)
HTTP_proxy_user = user name for logging onto your internet
HTTP_proxy_pass = password
Hope this helps OH the http:// must be included in your proxy server assress.
You can set these variables by right clicking on My Computer.
Selecting Properties, choosing the Advanced tab, and Clicking the Enviornment Variables button. You can then add New System variables in the bottom window.
