Sybperl simply calls the CTlib calls, as provided by Sybase for your
As far as I know, the CTlib calls are all blocking, unless you
use the asynchronous calls (which Sybperl does not support [yet]).
So I doubt very much that the different times you are seeing are the
results of a polling loop (I'm not sure *what* it is, though)
