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

Michael,

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 otherwise been.

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 :)
