perl@1983 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Can someone please help to clarify which Sybase library performs faster: Sybase::CTlib or DBD::Sybase?
I noticed that the BCP operation with Sybase::CTlib is way faster than DBD::Sybase. DBD::Sybase anyways has an "Experimental Bulk Load" functionality, which seems to be doing normal Insert only.
So, the questions are:
- is BCP better in Sybase::CTlib?
- Do people use DBD::Sybase only because of portability? Any specific reason for using it instead of Sybase::DBlib?
