Subject: DBD::Sybase connect question
Date: Oct 21 1998 4:10PM
I'm trying to use DBI and DBD::Sybase to connect to a Sybase database, but
I'm having no luck connecting to anything besides to default database. My
connection code uses the format:
my ($dbh) = DBI -> connect ($dbserver, $user, $auth, "Sybase");
I've read numerous DBI documentation and tutorials that claim I can
substitute the server parameter with a database name. I've tried:
my ($dbh) = DBI -> connect ($db, $user, $auth, "Sybase");
But when I try that, my Perl script just dies at that line.
Again, I've had no problems connecting to the default database. My problem
is when I try to connect to another database on the server. Am I missing
something really obvious here?
Please let me know what I'm doing wrong, thanks!
