For normal DBlib calls you have dbmsghandle() that is basically the
same as ct_callback(CS_SERVERMSG_CB).
You should look at the documentation for the bcp_*() calls in the
Sybase manuals. Basically bcp_sendrow() only fails if there is an
error on the client side. If there is an error on the server (such as
a duplicate row, or a conversion error) it will be reported when
either bcp_done() or bcp_batch() are called.
