One warning about this -- the resulting Sybase::CTlib module works
fine on Solaris, but not on IRIX.
For unknown reasons, Sybase used DCE threads in the IRIX version of
the reentrant Open Client libraries. If you don't have DCE, trhen the
code will fail to resolve symbols when it gets dlopen()ed.
We're harrassing Sybase to rebuild these using POSIX threads, but in
the interim, stick with the non-reentrant ones. This assumes of
course, that you areone of the customers who bothered to ask SYbase
for them in the first place.
