The cool thing about blogging software is that it shows the blogger all sorts of interesting information, such as the number of visitors, or the search string that led them to the blog.
I see lots of interesting search strings, but I keep wondering if the users actually found what they were looking for. That said, please be kind and leave a message telling me if you found what you wanted, and if you didn’t, please say what it was and I’ll try to cover that in my posts.
You can leave your message either as a comment here, or send me an email through the contact form.
I decided to change the looks of my blog. I’m using Atahualpa theme which is simply amazing. There are over 200 customization options which allow you to do practically anything you want.
If you are wondering about the logo, it is one of Pablo Picasso’s drawings. I chose it because of its simplicity, which is in my opinion one of Perl’s faces (I try not to get on its bad side – K.I.S.S.).
I hope you enjoy it.
Yesterday I found myself in a position of having to re-master my computer – hence having to reinstall most of the applications including my trusty Cygwin – which always becomes somewhat of a headache when I reach the point of installing DBD::Oracle in it.
This time I got a undefined symbol error. A quick look in Google showed me that Erik Squires had the same exact problem. Lots of searching later, I find that Google can’t find a handy solution anywhere… So I send Erik an email asking about the solution and to my surprise, he answers only 1 (!!) minute after I click send. Talk about a fast reply!!
Hats off to Erik! You will find the solution here: http://cpae.typepad.com/capacity_planning_and_eng/
Hint: the oci.def that he mentions in his post is inside your DBD::Oracle build directory. Don’t get it confused with ocidef.h file in your $ORACLE_HOME/oci/include directory (that’s where I looked first).
I’m adding the error message below with a big SOLUTION header for any Googler out there having the same problem. No need to keep reading if the text above was enough to solve your problem.
On my previous post, I talked about MySQL functionality “insert into … on duplicate key update” which I found really cool. It has since been the most popular of my messages (although nobody leaves any comments), so I guess I’ll start talking more about MySQL… Don’t forget to keep an eye out for fresh Perl updates as well though – the Perl Crash Course is slowly coming out of the oven.
Cheers to all.
Welcome to Vinny’s Technical Corner. Here you’ll find some (hopefully) interesting posts regarding the *nix world, general programming techniques, Perl, and other languages – web oriented and not.
I’ll try to keep the posts neatly organized in categories, for programming newbies to rocket scientists – in case there’s one out there who would like to share a piece of his/her mind with us…
So, welcome to my blog!
