( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
An existing perl script was working fine. However on a new linux server the text that is retrieved from a varchar 5000 column is being truncated. Apparently the Perl version is the same. When I did some searching I found the "LongReadLen" attribute. Where is this set so that it would be picked up by all the perl scripts? I tried to set it within the perl script to see if that would help and it failed, i.e.: "Setting of CS_OPT_TEXTSIZE failed at line 44." Line 44 is the line where the LongReadLen is set.
# --- connect to database ---/ $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:Sybase:server=$dbserver", $user, $passwd); $dbh->do("use $dbname"); $dbh->{LongReadLen} = 6000;
I would appreciate any assistance.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
