Hi ,
    I am using oracle client 9.2 ,ruby 1.8.6 and oci8 is installed .but
when i am trying to connect to oracle using the code :


equire 'oci8'
conn = OCI8.new("ftdam", "ftdam","host.string")

it is giving me error like this one :

c:/rubyapps/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/oci8.rb:51:in `init': OCI Library
Initialization Error (OCIError)
  from c:/rubyapps/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/oci8.rb:51
  from
c:/rubyapps/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in
`gem_original_require'
  from
c:/rubyapps/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in
`require'
  from ip_authenticate_oracle.rb:1

What is the problem and how to fix it .
I am able to connect to oracle using the same user name,password and
host string using sqlplus.
