5.10 but we still have to use 5.8 on our work desktops because the company does not want to upgrade to anything newer. Company policy states we cannot install any software without permission so trying to get anything newer is futile. It may be time to try to convince them to at least upgrade to 5.10 to match the version in AIX.

[erix]: ah, that's nice to hear Corion :)
[Corion]: erix: Yeah, the sad thing is that all I can do is document things, so I can point fingers when the auditors come :-/

[erix]: didn't Sybase have pretty good auditing? :) (this is a vague memory)
[erix]: (culprits often are upstream of db of course)
[Corion]: Ah, how I missed it. After some years, I revisit slashdot on a click-bait link, and it provides the usual humor instantly: "I didn't know Drupal had rules for sex. It must be a plug-in"
[Corion]: erix: This is not for sybase, but for the input data files, resp. their contents.
