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:
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.
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.
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,
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
