Env.: ruby 1.6.8, ruby-dbi 0.18, ruby-oci8 0.1.2.
      Oracle 9.2.0.1.0, Red-hat 7.2.

I'm trying to insert binary data into a BLOB field and it always with
either

/usr/lib/ruby/1.6/oci8.rb:300: `ORA-00933: SQL command not properly ended' (OCIError)

or with

/usr/lib/ruby/1.6/oci8.rb:239: `Not supported type (DBI::Binary)' (ArgumentError)

The former is when I try to insert direct binary data stored in a string
and the latter when I use DBI::Binary... 

Any idea?

Code generating the second error:
-=-=-
  matricule = argv[0].to_s
  path = LOGO_PATH + argv[1].to_s
  begin
    image_raw = File.open(path).read
    image = DBI::Binary.new(image_raw)
  rescue => msg
    $stderr.puts("Error: #{msg}")
    exit 1
  end

  req = <<-"EOR"
insert into prs_photo (mime_type, object) values (?,?)
where c_matricule=?
  EOR

  begin
    $dbh.transaction do
      sth = $dbh.prepare(req)
      sth.bind_param(1, "image/jpeg")
      sth.bind_param(2, image, type => OCI8::RAW)
      sth.bind_param(3, matricule)
      sth.execute
    end
  rescue DBI::DatabaseError => err
    $stderr.puts "Error: #{err.err} #{err.errstr}"
    exit 1
  end
