tecmbg has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Has anyone had the chance to use the 64 bit versions of DBD Sybase using dates/times? I'm pulling out a date from Sybase 15, with the latest version of ctlib, and getting weird results. This same function works fine on the 32 bit side. It does work properly if a "convert(char(20, date)" is used in the query, but we don't want to change the code if possible. Without the convert, it is just pulling the date from a date column is chopping off the time when it is midnight. Also, if the date is 1/1/1900, its only outputting the time, without the date at all. We've tried multiple versions of DBD, still no luck. Any suggestions?
