Yes, the make test did work properly. By weird, I mean the date field (defined as date in the database), returns "Jan 4 2013 12:00am" as "Jan 4 2013". A field (defined as time in the database), returns "Jan 1 1900 5:00pm" as "5:00pm". In 32 bit, the dates return as "Jan 4 2013 12:00am" and "Jan 1 1900 5:00pm" respectively.

    Is this with the exact same version of OpenClient, with just the 32/64 bit difference?

    Because the 64bit data you get is more correct - and is also what I get with a 32bit 15.7 client:

    use strict; use DBI; my $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:Sybase:server=foo', 'user, '***'); my $sth = $dbh->prepare("select convert(date, getdate()), convert(time +, getdate())"); $sth->execute; while(my $r = $sth->fetch) { print "@$r\n"; }
    which outputs:
    $ perl /tmp/date.pl Feb 7 2013 3:06PM
    And to me that's as it should be - you're asking for just the date, so no time portion is displayed, or just the time, and no date portion is displayed.

    This is with DBD::Sybase 1.14, btw.

      It does seem more correct, but I don't believe it should require me to change the code? Shouldn't this be backward compatible?
