You have to use sybinit to add the cp850 character set. This will make an
entry in master..syscharsets.

joseph> Ever since "upgrading" to Perl 5.00502, Sybperl 2.09xx I've been

joseph> Background:

joseph>      -- libwin32 0.13 built, tested, and installed all ok.

joseph>      -- Sybperl 2.0905 built ok, tested all ok except for BCP
subtest 9 (I
