Subject: Where does the SYBPERL newbie start looking for samples library?
Date: Oct 23 1997 2:19AM


I'm new to the group. Have been looking around in all the places I can
think of trying to figure out where to start finding examples I can use to
learn how to work with SYBPERL. I have experience using SYBASE (and sql in
other forms and places) and experience using PERL for cgi scripting. I will
be using SYBPERL modules which have already been installed at a place where
I do work.  I have tried out local people resources there seeking interface
code samples, but it hasn't been running that long and they're concerned
about the security of the beta project they have running. I'm pretty much
on my own to figure this out.

I'm specifically interested in finding code heaven. Someplace where I can
find lots of samples of code which I can use to try out the interface
between the product and the web via perl. By searching the gopher archive
for this newsgroup, I found a reference to $SYBASE/sample but I'm not clear
where that is. I dug around in the CPAN directory but that doesn't seem to
be it - or else I'm heading down the wrong path there.

I must admit that me CPAN navigation skills are not superior. I have
managed to install some CPAN modules in my own shell account once. I can
'gunzip' and untar but beyond that I tend to get a little lost.

I'm guessing there is a really obvious faq/web site that says 'here are
lots of samples' and would appreciate being pointed there. Beyond general
web and dejanews searching, I have stared at the 'welcome to the newsgroup'
message   and used that to visit the gopher and doing some general
searching on things like 'sample code' and 'faq'. No doubt I've missed
something really obvious and someone will post/write soon to tell me to
check out the nose on my face.

On my honor I swear to guide the steps of the next faltering newbie who
posts to this group!

Thanks in advance.
