in reply to Perl with Sybase: sybperl or DBI/DBD::Sybase?


When I first started using Perl, the vast majority of the work I was doing was interacting with Sybase databases (I was using Sybase long before I was using Perl). Sybperl made my live much easier than it would have otherwise been.

Since then, my emphasis has changed. I now use Perl with many different database systems. For that, DBI and the various DBD modules has been a lifesaver as it means that I can change database systems easily and still use very similar Perl code.

I guess what I'm trying to say, is that without Sybperl I probably wouldn't have started using Perl - so my Perl career is largely your fault.

So thank you :)

[kcott]: marioroy, not much to go on. Searching "slow logging" (by me) produces no results; just "slow" gives a screenful. Perhaps, "Searching large files a block at a time" which had a performance aspect and you had some imput also.
[gnosti]: Hi, Looking for a module that can add HH:MM:SS durations like 1:40, 1:00:24.13 and 12.3? I see on CPAN more modules with absolute dates. TIA
[kcott]: s/imput/input/
[Corion]: DateTime::Duration ? Personally,I convert stuff to seconds using Time::Piece or Time::Local and then add the seconds and then use POSIX::strftime to print them as hours again
