A very useful and clear article, thank you!
Worth knowing: By default, if you use the tsql date commands, you get the date from DBD::Sybase in a rather inconvenient format, with the year, day and month like this: "Jul 8 2014".
If you add$dbh->syb_date_fmt('ISO');
Just after you open the database handle, DBD::Sybase then presents date data in a more useful format, "2014-07-08".
