DBD::Oracle and Oracle 8.1.6
Message ID:

has anyone successfully built DBD::Oracle on VMS with Oracle 8.1.6
without using the -8 switch?

I supposedly need OCI v8 for an application that wants to use LOBs.
The error message when running the setup script is:

DBD::Oracle::st execute failed:
  ORA-00932: inconsistent datatypes (DBD: oexfet error, e.g.,
  can't select LOB fields using DBD::Oracle built for Oracle 7)
  at /perl_root/lib/site_perl/DBIx/SearchBuilder/ line 320.
RT::Handle=HASH(0x1df48c) couldn't execute the query
  'SELECT  * FROM Users WHERE id = ?'

(formatting mine)

Even after installing the ProgInt package, I seem to be missing
at least oci1.h (which is included by ora_root:[rdbms]oci.h)
when building for v8 (i.e. without -8).

Thanks in advance for any clues,
