Subject: Digital Unix 4.0 test failure

Greetings,

Has anyone successfully build sybperl on a Digital Unix 4 system.  We
recently upgraded our server from 3.2G to 4.0D and I can't get sybperl to
work.

The system is:

A DEC Alphaserver 8400 DEC OSF1 V4.0D

Sybase Open Client 
Sybase CTISQL Utility/11.1.1/P/DEC AXP/OSF/1 4.0/1/OPT/Fri Aug  8 16:33:07
1997

This is perl, version 5.004_04 built for alpha-dec_osf

I get one really minor compile error:

cc: Warning: DBlib.xs, line 4255: In this statement, the referenced type
of the 
pointer value "buf" is "char", which is not compatible with "unsigned
char".
    RETVAL = dbmoretext(dbproc, size, buf);
-------------^


And on make test:

t/bcp...............Can't call method "sql" without a package or object
reference at t/bcp.t line 49.
dubious
        Test returned status 22 (wstat 5632, 0x1600)
DIED. FAILED tests 2-9
        Failed 8/9 tests, 11.11% okay
Failed Test  Status Wstat Total Fail  Failed  List of failed
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
t/bcp.t          22  5632     9    8  88.89%  2-9
Failed 1/1 test scripts, 0.00% okay. 8/9 subtests failed, 11.11% okay.

I first thought that it was not reading the correct UID/PW and hard coded
them but that is not the case.  Running any one of the test programs
results in the same error ?

My SYBASE environment variable is set correctly.  I even tried setting
LD_LIBARY_PATH=/usr/sybase/lib

No chage.

I've checked the FAQ and archives (someone was having the same problems on
a 4.0b system about a month ago but I could find no ... answers).

I appreciate any and all hints, assistance and help.  Sybperl is _very_
important app to us ....

Cheers,


Marco
