Subject: Is DBDEAD OK?
Date: Aug 25 1997 8:09PM

Hi All,

I'm running Perl 5.003 with sybperl-2.05.  I would like to know if
anyone of you have had problems with DBDEAD.  In my case, I have a
script which maintains a constant connection to the DB.  Before doing
any data inserts in the DB, I check if the connection is ok
($dbh->DBDEAD).  Problem: DBDEAD tells me that the connection is OK even
when it is dead.  Clues?
