DBD::Oracle and OPS$ auth.

 DBD::Oracle and OPS$ auth.

I use Perl5, DBI 1.06 and DBD::Oracle 0.59.

I can successful connect to an Oracle7 via OPS$ accounts
(OS authentication):

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

But I cannot connect to an Oracle8. Any idea?

 DBD::Oracle and OPS$ auth.
Oracle has changed the OCI API completely.
Instead of olog you now call OCIAttrSet
and OCISessionBegin.
I cite from the Oracle8 documentation:

  The second type of credentials supported are external
  credentials. No attributes need to be set on the user
  session handle before calling OCISessionBegin().
  The credential type is OCI_CRED_EXT. This is equivalent
  to the Oracle7 `connect /' syntax. If values have been
  these are ignored if OCI_CRED_EXT is used.

Tim supports this feature in DBD::Oracle 0.60.
