You could also run isql, pipe the output to your speaker, stick a microphone
next to it, record the noise, and transform it back into data.

But why do that when you can have your entire Sybase interface in one
process?

	Subject:	sybperl vs. isql

	Something has been bothering me, so I thought I would share it. 

	I am (I believe) a competent Perl programmer and would use Perl for
all of
	my scripting needs if I could. I have used sybperl (and its
derivatives)
	successfully but I can't help wondering why. Wouldn't opening an
isql
	filehandle be just as good? Can anybody argue successfully for my
continued
	used of sybperl? 

	Cheers

	Adam
