i used bioperl code which used DBI module with oracle
bioperl code use $sth->bind_param($bind_num,$bind_val)
without considering if the binding column is some type of lob
which in this case the comman should be
$sth->bind_param($bind_num,$bind_val,{ ora_type => DBD::Oracle::ORA_CLOB })

is there away which i can initiate the DBI module or the $dbh that the 3rd param will be obsolete
because i cant change this code
thank itamar
