in reply to Cannot retrieve more than 80 chars using DBI:ODBC

was going to make a feeble attempt at humor by mentioning that this must be a relic from Microsoft's past when they did their computing on 80 character punchcards...but then I decided it was probably just not that funny...

fwiw, Win32::ODBC handles > 80 without switches, at least that is my memory, then again I seem to have lost memories of microsoft using punchcards....wait, I decided not to go there...nevermind :-)

thankfully useful information was posted about this before I arrived
