I've just sent off sybperl 2.05 to CPAN. This is a bug fix release which
solves most of the problems that have been identified with 2.04 and earlier
This will (almost certainly) be my last release until I get settled in my
new job (which is going to take at least four weeks), but I will attempt to
continue to follow the discussions on the list during that time.
2.05 Bug Fixes
165 Make fails if DBLIBVS < 461.
166 bcp_sendrow() truncates binary (ie TEXT/IMAGE)
fields if they contain NULL bytes.
167 The 5.002 make install places local module in
$PERL5LIB/site_perl, which is searched *after*
169 -L$SYBASE/lib comes too late in the
$LDFLAGS/$LDDLFLAGS Makefile variables, which can
cause the wrong library to be referenced (tcl/tk's
libtcl.a vs. Sybase's).
170 Retrieving numeric data causes the fields to be
padded with spaces instead of being NULL terminated
after the last digit.
The new version will appear in due course under
