\i is a feature specific to psql, and is not used by DBD::Pg
(or anything else, for that matter). If what you are doing is
trying to run a collection of commands that are saved in a file,
you should use do() and normal perl file reading:

open(F, "$file") or die qq{Could not open the file "$file": $!\n};
while(<F>) {
        $dbh->do($_);
}

This assumes each line is a valid, self-contained SQL command, of course.
