I have managed to make the demo script that I wrote before work by switching to DBD:Sybase. I'll post the code and the output soon( I will attach it above, so it may be there if your reading this... hee hee) Thanks for helping me determine that it was (probably) not the scripting.

    There's a similar bug report link to bug report involving size of inserton CPAN, with a fix that I don't understand. Sybase isn't working out becuase it scrambles my files (see dbd:Sybase bit scramble).
    I'll update soon after trying a new driver.
    Thanks again for the help, I've found it useful.

      So in order to avoid spending money on a driver (although I did try the easysoft driver and it worked well), I wrote a c# script to update the column of my table which held the actual binary data from the files which I wanted to insert. So, although I now have to ftp the files to a windows box and then insert and delete them there, it works. There is a great example on how to do the c# udate on the web elsewhere.
