When I first started using Perl, the vast majority of
the work I was doing was interacting with Sybase databases
(I was using Sybase long before I was using Perl). Sybperl
made my live much easier than it would have
Since then, my emphasis has changed. I now use Perl with
many different database systems. For that, DBI and the
various DBD modules has been a lifesaver as it means that I
can change database systems easily and still use very
similar Perl code.
I guess what I'm trying to say, is that without Sybperl
I probably wouldn't have started using Perl - so my Perl
career is largely your fault.
So thank you :)
