Subject: Re: Anyone running Perl with Sybase Anywhere (WATCOM SQL) on Windows
Date: Mar 20 1996 7:06AM
Anyone running Perl or a reasonable simile or subset on
*Windows 3.1* say with Sybase's SQL Anywhere (formerly WATCOM SQL)?
If not what will I have to do move my developed work to a UNIX
platform. I haven't found yet any ports of Perl to run on Windows 3.1
which would "upwards" compatible with UNIX Perl and SQL databases.
I am considering a Windows 3.1 TCL, available on CDROM from Walnut
CDROM (also with various UNIX binaries). Naviservice, a subsidiary of
America Online (the worst recommendation you could have), uses TCL
with their composite Web Server and database. The TCL CGI, as
I understand it, is used to update the data base and generate HTML
through SQL calls to through data dictionary tables.
However, I would prefer not to use TCL. I haven't seen much
documentation on it, and I hear its filled with security holes.
I'm looking for a cheap development environment. I just ordered
SQL anywhere for a $200 desktop version with a 60 day money back
