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


I've been using Sybase::CTlib for something like five or six years now in a Solaris/Sybase shop. I did a bit of C programming with Sybase. The difference was night and day. Sybperl took so much of the ooky-but-necessary fiddly bits and just hid them. A lot of my Sybase/Perl programs look like:

$db->ct_sql(<<GO, sub { # process the rows }); SQL SQL GO
repeated as needed...

Right now, I don't have the luxury of what amounts to a pure Sybase shop to support. Thank you Michael for making this possible!

Now, I am looking into DBI just because it seems to be a good idea to be familiar with it...
