Subject: Re: further syb_more_results problems in DBD::Sybase 0.08?

I realize now that my posting is missing some important data:

If you use the default values for PrintError and RaiseError on connecting 
to the database, the messages all come back to the client regardless of the 
presence of the SELECT in the nested procedure.

However, we would like to set them both false, and do our own handling of 
$h->err and $h->errstr, particularly in a CGI environment where one doesn't 
want uncontrolled messages going to STDOUT or STDERR.

Again, perhaps my sample script is just handling these errors improperly in 
the absence of the default PrintError handling?
