Subject: Help with installing sybperl!
Date: Oct 23 1997 3:50PM

when I try to install sybperl, I get ana error that I can't figure out.  when I type perl this is what I get:

/home/perl5.004_01/sybperl-2.07>perl ./Makefile.PL
Semicolon seems to be missing at ./config line 14.
Semicolon seems to be missing at ./config line 18.
Bareword found where operator expected at ./config line 19, near "/home/sybase"
        (Missing operator before ybase?)
Semicolon seems to be missing at ./config line 26.
syntax error at ./config line 15, near "CTLIBVS"

my config file is this:
# Configuration file for Sybperl
# DBlibrary version. Set to 1000 (or higher) if you have System 10
# Set to 0 if you do not want to build DBlib or if DBlib is not available
# (Linux, for example)

# CTlib version. Set to 0 if Client Library is not available on your
# system, or if you don't want to build the CTlib module. The Client
# Library started shipping with System 10.
# Note that the CTlib module is still under construction, though the
# core API should be stable now.
# Set to 100 if you have System 10.

# Where is the Sybase directory on your system (include files &
# libraries are expected to be found at SYBASE/include & SYBASE/lib

# Additional libraries.
# Some systems require -lnsl or -lBSD.
# Solaris 2.x needs -ltli
# DEC OSF/1 needs -ldnet_stub
# See the Sybase OpenClient Supplement for your OS/Hardware
# combination.

# Additional #defines.
# With Perl 5.001m, you will need -DUNDEF_BUG.
# With Perl 5.002, none are normally needed, but you may wish to
# use -DDO_TIE to get the benefit of stricter checking on the
# Sybase::DBlib and Sybase::CTlib attributes.

# If you wish to link Sybase::DBlib and/or Sybase::CTlib statically
# into perl uncomment the line below and run the make normally. Then,
# when you run 'make test' a new perl binary will be built.

Any help would be great.
