sqlplus seems the the easiest option. It tends to be installed with Oracle everywhere I have worked.
Perl modules - considered it, but these would need more installation and packaging and testing etc. This is just a simple script for a couple of queries, and I don't want to have to arrange for Perl modules to magically be present.
It would be nice if Oracle shipped with some Perl modules.

Anyway - thanks everyone for the answers. Was just checking I hadn't missed something obvious really.. Received on Tue May 17 2011 - 12:57:08 CDT
