Unfortunately I was not able to find a good equivalent of
dbstrcpy() in the Sybase docs for ClientLibrary. The only reference
was to ct_debug() (I think), which requires building with the
You can probably fake it if you really need it by adding some
hooks in front of ct_execute() and ct_command(), although that's
not really optimal.

No, there is no documentation that I know of for sybperl migration
from DBlib to CTlib. But I believe that the Sybase OpenClient
docs cover this topic to some extent, and most of that applies to
sybperl as well.
WRT error/message handlers, basically the server callback is the
message handler, and the client callback is the error handler.
