DBD::Sybase -- a Sybase DBI driver for Perl 5.
This Sybase DBI driver is built using the Sybase OpenClient Client
Library (aka CT-library). You will need to have that installed before
you can do anything with this package. You will also need Tim Bunce's
DBI module, latest release. DBI is available from CPAN, in
The Sybase OpenClient libraries are of course available from Sybase.
See http://www.sybase.com or http://www.peppler.org for details.
An alternative is to use the FreeTDS reimplementation of Client Library.
With FreeTDS DBD::Sybase can be used to query a MS-SQL 7 or 2000
database server from a Unix/linux host.
See http://www.freetds.org for details.
If you use FreeTDS please read the README.freetds file.
DBD::Sybase is a reasonably complete implementation of the DBI spec, but
there are still some features that are missing. Please see the DBD::Sybase
man page for details.
