DBD::Sybase is a driver for the perl DBI (database interface) module. It
requires the Sybase Open Client library (version 10.0 or later) to
build and run.

This is a bug fix release. If you are using 0.12, or if you are using ? 
style placeholders you should *definitely* upgrade.


>From the CHANGES file:

Release 0.13

	Bug fix release - binding undef (NULL) variables when using
	? style placeholders didn't work.
	Incorrect login didn't get flagged properly (this bug was
	introduced in 0.11.)
	Added database attribute to the connect() call.

Release 0.12

	Bug fix release - recent versions of DBI make an array that
	DBD::Sybase uses read-only, causing errors when multiple
	result sets are retrieved where the second result set is wider 
	(has more columns) than the first one.

Release 0.11

	Adds support for multiple $sth for a single $dbh (this is done 
	by openeing a new connection in prepare() if the previously
	prepared statement is still active.
	Add support for date formatting via $dbh->func($fmt,
	'_date_fmt').
	Added two new connect attributes: scriptName and
	hostname. Setting these can help identify processes in the
	Sybase sysprocesses table.


This version should be available in a day or so from your local CPAN
archive, and is available now from my home page at 
http://www.mbay.net/~mpeppler.
