Ok this may or may not be what I should do but....

My company has this legacy accounting program that has a "new" db called
Unidata.  I have an ODBC hook to it in Winblows95/NT only.  The ODBC driver
is by Sybase.  Now to the interesting part.  I want to use perl on my Linux
webserver to read the Unidata database and I am thinking that if I put Sybase
on the webserver and use sybperl to read some views that I create out of an
ODBC hook to the real db on the AIX server.

Am I mad or is this do-able?
