I will create a renamed driver with the name DBD::Firebird in cpan from the above fork and i will apply all the patches and fix the bugs that were not fixed
The name Buzz Moschetti probably isn’t familiar to you. Buzz was the author of the Perl 4 database for Interbase known as Interperl.
Back in those days Perl 5 was barely a twinkle in Larry’s eye and database interfaces for Perl 4 required building a custom perl binary.
ps: Interabase & Firebird contributed stable api not only in the c and Delphi/Lazarus world but also in the Perl one with one of the first best drivers
There is now support for the Firebird RDBMS in the most popular ORM for
Perl, DBIx::Class, as of version 0.08121 .
Using the ODBC driver with DBD::ODBC is recommended.
There is also support for DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader, which is used to
dump schema definitions, as of version 0.06000 .
This ORM is often used with the Catalyst web framework:
This plugin contains functions/mappings/commands to enable Vim to
access several databases , including Firebird
I’ve uploaded tarballs of the current libdbi and libdbi-drivers cvs
versions. Both will identify themselves as 0.8.3-pre1. I intend to
release them as 0.8.3 shortly, unless someone finds showstoppers.
Check if firebird dev headers are installed (this package is both for Super and for Classic)
sudo apt-get install firebird2.1-dev
I have installed latest DBI
tar -zxvf DBI-1.609.tar.gz
sudo make install
Then install the Firebird driver
tar -zxvf DBD-InterBase-0.48.tar.gz
make test (optional step)
here is my actual console output
