in reply to Perl with Sybase: sybperl or DBI/DBD::Sybase?

When I use Perl and Sybase products together, DBI/DBD::Sybase is always the choice.

I don't need that finer level of control Sybperl is providing and it seems most need even less than DBD::Sybase is giving.
Consider the DBIx modules or even EZDBI, they offer the simplest way to SQL and I think that's the way most people go.

Perhaps it would be possible to incorporate some of the more sophisticated things into DBD::Sybase.
The DBD::Pg module offers a method called func which executes PostgreSQL specific functions in a consistent way.
That could be a way for DBD::Sybase to provide some specialties.

Asynchronous requests, this is great! I'd love to see that in DBD::Sybase.

You did a great job with Sybperl and DBD::Sybase, Michael!
Thanks a lot!

    There are a few Sybase specific calls that you can execute via $dbh->func(...) or $sth->func(...). In particular you can do native read/write of IMAGE/TEXT data that way.
