seems to me that with perl and the right DBD::*.pm, YOU are the
one creating the client.

i think.

I just had these installed on a solaris server here at work and (the sysadmin installed it, not me) I think you can get it all off cpan. Installing the DBI and DBD modules is necessary for sure and I think you'll need to install DBD:Oracle.pm (under @INC/DBD) separately but I believe it's also available from cpan. You may also want to check out the perldoc page on the oracle module or, alterantely, this web page: http://hazmat.fms.indiana.edu/DBD-DBI/DBD-Oracle.html
