Subject: Size of null char field
Date: Apr 27 1998 2:28AM

How big is a char field that allows nulls? The reason I ask is because
sybperl returns trailing spaces to fill out the column to the declared
width for not null fields. Yet it returns only the actual string for
null fields. Does that imply that sybase uses less disk space for null
fields?
