Today I was trying all day to compile DCOracle2 on RHES 3 witch Oracle 9
or 10 client and nothing. But in the evening (I've finished 10 minutes
ago) on my laptop with FC3 and oracle 10 client everything went fine.
The solution is to change 3 words in dco2.c You just need to change
"dword" to "dvoid" (all 3 times) and it's fine. I don't know why I
couldn't compile it on my development server. Idon't think it's os'es
problem, it's rather something with oracle client or environment
variables. I'll see it tomorow at work.
