in reply to The Pros and Cons of Using Sybperl in 2001
in thread Perl with Sybase: sybperl or DBI/DBD::Sybase?

*blush* ...Thanks...

I agree that writing a good script that uses the lower level library isn't as easy as it could be, and that there are quite a few pitfalls.
However, I have a feeling that most of these issues are related to the SQL side of things, and to an improper handling of result sets (which I think is the single most common problem) and those problems will be the same whether you use DBI or Sybase::CTlib.

You know the old saw - you can write bad code in any language :-)

I would be interested in hearing more (off-line) about any failed sybperl related projects that you know about (if you can share that information, of course). If I can improve on the documentation to avoid those sort of problems then I'd like to do that...

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
