ggolub1 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi all I have installed sybperl 1.08 with activeperl. I ran perl makefile.pl. Got some messages about libraries not found. When I try to run script, I get:
install_driver(Sybase) failed: Can't locate DBD/Sybase.pm in @INC (@IN +C contains : C:\mk\Etc C:/Perl/site/lib C:/Perl/lib .) at (eval 4) line 3. Perhaps the DBD::Sybase perl module hasn't been fully installed, or perhaps the capitalisation of 'Sybase' isn't right. Available drivers: CSV, DBM, ExampleP, File, Gofer, ODBC, Oracle, Prox +y, SQLite, Sponge. at C:\p_sc\p1.pl line 9
Can somebody recommend what should I do next. I browsed web for hours - could not find an answer. Thank you, Gene.

    Well, it tells you in the error message what's wrong: DBD::Sybase isn't installed. So go ahead and install it.

      That's definitely the error message for a missing DBD::Sybase but the OP's first sentence was I have installed sybperl 1.08 with activeperl. I'm not much on activeperl but I'm guessing the OP either has two versions of perl installed or the install did not go well.

      Doh! Joost is right ... (I should have remembered that).

    You're trying to install DBD::Sybase, not sybperl (sybperl 1.08 would be really old... :-)

    You say "Got some messages about libraries not found..."

    That may be a rather important clue about the problem - please post the actual error messages that you got.
