Sybperl will connect to an MS-SQL server with no problem, provided
you have Sybase's OpenClient available.

I know of a project to port Sybperl to MS-SQL server's API, but
it isn't quite ready for prime time. However email me directly
if you are interested.

I don't know if an OpenClient app can connect to a SQL-Anywhere
server, although I would think that that should be possible (I have
downloaded a demo of SQL Anywhere for Solaris, but I haven't
played with it yet).

Hope this helps!
