Subject: Problems with Sybperl and Genera

i'm in troubles with Genera installation...
I'll tell you:
I spent a whole week trying to install genera/sybperl/perl in a NCR s3k
machine, but it was a lot painful, so i turned to a Sun solaris system. In this
new scenario, i've installed:
Sybase 10.0.2 + OpenClient/C
perl 5.001m (ok)
sybperl-2.0 (ok; appart from perl; not as an extension)
genera (ok, but for a missing parameter in a dbsetopt() in sybfmt.c:117)
When i say "ok" i mean the procedures of installation and testing of the
programs run ok. Now, i've tryied to generate schemas for an existing db (pubs2
from the scripts directory under Sybase). So, i moved the genera directory to
the htdocs tree, defined DB (pubs2) and DBDIR (/.../htdocs/genera), but the
very first line of sch2sql begun with problems:
1) Where is "sybperl"? I do a "find" looking for it, but there is no such a
program in all my disk.!!!
2) I changed this "sybperl" to "perl", and the "sch2sql" script aborts saying:
# ./sch2sql -all
Literal @key now requires backslash at ./sch2sql line 117, within string
Execution of ./sch2sql aborted due to compilation errors.
I've defined DBDIR and DB before doing this.
So, what more is needed to do?
I've installed Sybase 10.0.2 + OpenClient/C. Do i need anything else (Embedeed
SQL or similar)???
Should i try installing sybperl as an extension to perl?
Thanks a lot for any help,
