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

Howdy!

I've been using Sybase::CTlib for something like five or six years now in a Solaris/Sybase shop. I did a bit of C programming with Sybase. The difference was night and day. Sybperl took so much of the ooky-but-necessary fiddly bits and just hid them. A lot of my Sybase/Perl programs look like:

$db->ct_sql(<<GO, sub { # process the rows }); SQL SQL GO
repeated as needed...

Right now, I don't have the luxury of what amounts to a pure Sybase shop to support. Thank you Michael for making this possible!

Now, I am looking into DBI just because it seems to be a good idea to be familiar with it...

yours,
Michael

[stevieb]: I really dislike how perlbrew doesn't list your version of perl if a newer minor version bump has happened. eg: I use 5.24.1, but 5.24.2 is available, hiding my 5.24.1. I may look at this, as I made it display correctly in berrybrew in cases like this
[stevieb]: choroba just gleaned your post about Module::Starter. I use it too, pretty much for every dist I write
[LanX]: I remeber M::S (it was dialog driven?) to be buggy
[stevieb]: As far as Dist::Zilla goes, I don't like installing that other than on systems my test platorm runs on. I find it too heavy. I prefer being able to glean a Makefile.PL
[LanX]: what's frustrating me is that a distribution has lots of dupplicated info
[stevieb]: LanX I don't know if it's dialog driven; I just use it in the simplest of terms (just run module-starter at the CLI, and the very last couple of lines are how I use it.
