Subject: ANNOUNCE: sybperl 2.08
Date: Oct 7 1997 6:02PM

I have just uploaded sybperl 2.08 to CPAN, and it will wind its way
to your local CPAN mirror in a day or two.

2.08 is mainly a bug fix release, with a couple of new features in
Sybase::DBlib to offer better support for large TEXT/IMAGE data
items.

>From the CHANGES file:

2.08	New Features:

	Added dbpreptext(), dbreadtext(), dbmoretext(), dbsqlok()
	and force_dbclose() to Sybase::DBlib.
	Added dbspid() to Sybase::DBlib

	Bug Fixes

	Made some code adjustments to silence some perl 5.004
	warnings.
	Finally fixed the "'rpcInfo' is not a valid Sybase::DBlib
	attribute" bug...
	Fixed DBSETLPACKET() macro definition (for pre-system 10
	libraries).
	Fixed ct_config() so that integer values can be set and
	retrived. This implied adding a 'type' argument which defaults
	to CS_CHAR_TYPE, but must be set to CS_INT_TYPE if integer
	values are passed or retrieved.
	Fixed dbclose() in Sybperl.pm to *really* close connections.
	Renamed config to config.pl to avoid problems under Win/NT.
	ct_fetch() added an extra \0 at the end of TEXT/IMAGE data.
	Fixed a reorder bug in BCP.pm.
	Fixed Sybase::CTlib::ct_sql() to set $dbh->{RC} to CS_FAIL 
	when an error occurs in the processing.
	Sybase::DBlib::dbrpcxxx() calls where not returning any success
	or failure information.
	Sybase::CTlib::ct_col_types() returns CS_INT_TYPE for all integer
	types.

I have also updated the documentation and the FAQ, both of which
are available now on my homepage, along with the 2.08 release
(http://www.mbay.net/~mpeppler).

I've released this now because I intend to make some deeper changes
for 2.09 to improve performance (I was slightly miffed that
DBD::Sybase is quite a bit faster that Sybase::CTlib SELECTs on wide
tables, so I'm going to work on that...)
