Compatibility problem of Tk Module in different versions


I am using Tk module in perl 5.6 and it is working fine. Now when i installed the newer version 5.10.0 then getting error that Tk module not found. But i will have to work on this newer verison only to use some other modules of perl.

I want to know why Tk module is not working in newer version of perl.

# 2  
You are sure the include path @INC includes the directory where the previous Tk was installed and it's still there?
# 3  
I searched for my problem and found that instead of Tk in 5.6 , 5.10 uses Tkx module. I think I will have to change my code according to the syntax of Tkx module.
# 4  
This is a known problem. The solution is to get the source for the Tk module from and rebuild it
# 5  
I am facing one more problem. I want to connect oracle database through perl. For it i am using DBI module which is not working for perl 5.6 so do i need to install some driver for it?

Please provide sample code so we can see what you are doing

sample code:------------

use DBI;
use DBD::Oracle qw(Smiliera_types);

my $dbh = DBI->connect( "dbi:Oracle:SILAB", "tdbu01", "tdbu01",@t1)
|| die( $DBI::errstr . "\n" );

my $sth = $dbh->prepare( "SELECT * FROM employee" )
or die "Can't prepare SQL statement: $DBI::errstr\n";

or die "Can't execute SQL statement: $DBI::errstr\n";

my @row;
while ( @row = $sth->fetchrow_array( ) ) {
print "Row: @row\n";

the problem is not in this code as it works fine with perl 5.10.
But as I wrote my complete code for 5.6(as already mentioned using module Tk not Tkx for GUI interface), I want to hit the database using 5.6 only.

Advance Thanks for your suggestions
