NAME ^

DBD::Teradata - DBI driver for Teradata

SYNOPSIS ^

  use DBI;

  $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:Teradata:hostname', 'user', 'password');

See DBI for more information.

DESCRIPTION ^

Refer to the included doc/index.html, or http://www.presicient.com/tdatdbd for detailed information.

NOTE: This version has been deprecated in favor of the more complete and maintained GPL version available at http://www.presicient.com/tdatdbd.

PREREQUISITES

Install Perl (minimum version 5.8).

Build, test and install the DBI module (minimum version 1.36).

Remember to *read* the DBI README, this README, and the included doc/index.html CAREFULLY!

I had a lot of info to distill, and POD, though quaint and convenient for READMEs like this, just isn't as expressive as HTML...hence doc/index.html. Please refer to doc/index.html for detailed usage information.

*** BUILDING:

NOTE

The provided test suite is not suitable for normal Perl "make test", as it requires a Teradata database and a username and password for an account with various privileges (e.g., CREATE PROCEDURE).

After installing, you can verify the install by running

        perl t/test.pl <host> <user> <password>

where <host> is the name of your Teradata server. NOTE that CLI does NOT support numeric IP addresses, nor addresses with the COPn suffix already applied, i.e.,

        perl t/test.pl 129.123.345.78 dbc dbc   # WRONG

        perl t/test.pl DBCCOP1 dbc dbc          # WRONG

        perl t/test.pl DBC dbc dbc              # RIGHT!

Building For Microsoft Windows

You'll need the nmake utility, available with the various Visual Studio tools. You'll also need to make sure your command prompt is configured to find nmake; see the Visual Studio documents for how to do that.

To build:

    perl Makefile.pl    # use a perl that's in your PATH
    nmake
    nmake install

Building For UNIX/Linux

    perl Makefile.pl    # use a perl that's in your PATH
    make
    make install

IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS

Please read the doc/index.html file which includes important information, including tips and workarounds for various platform-specific problems.
