Actually, DBD::Sybase doesn't use an obsolete/old protocol. It uses whatever freetds has available, which is usually TDS 7 or 8, which happens to be the current native protocol for MS-SQL.

It's just a different implementation from the native ODBC API, but it's the same protocol. And if you use DBD::ODBC on Unix/Linux with freetds, then you really use the same protocol as DBD::Sybase, but with a different API.

[hippo]: The thesholds/benefits balance at the time was nuts.
[hippo]: But that doesn't last because, you know ... politicians. :(
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, if you still get enough money to get by and don't have expensive hobbies or other fixed costs that can work out well
[ambrus]: ah good. I pay only rent too. but that still costs significant money.
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, but that is already budgeted for
