The 2.03 port of sybperl to NT does not support user defined
error/message handlers. I believe this is documented in the 
packages readme (although that file may only be part of the
NT port's source).

If you have perl 5.004 or later you can build sybperl 2.08_52
on NT, which supports the same functionality as the Unix version.
