Friend lachoy is correct - DBD::Sybase does use a wider range of Client Library API calls in recent versions.

However, FreeTDS is progressing nicely so that all versions of DBD::Sybase build with the current release (AFAIK), even though some of the functionality won't work, or won't work correctly.

I try to keep an eye on the FreeTDS developpment (even though I don't actually do any of the coding myself) to keep track of the most important issues.

[ambrus]: MLX: if it's a work email, then it's probably not Uncle Sam that matters, but what the account managing server at work thinks your name is. Those can differ. For example, we've had two co-workers with identical real name at one point,
[ambrus]: so one got a stupid suffix in the email account (people have email address based on their real name here usually).
