Subject: sybperl scripts never exit
Date: Apr 23 1999 7:04PM

use sybase and run under perl5.005/sybperl2.09 never stop - they reach the end
of the script and apparently never exit, but continue to eat CPU cycles at an
These same scripts work properly under an older version of perl, and when I
the sybperl version reporting line I get this: "Unrecognized switch:
-MSybase::DBlib(999)". From a recent post, I suspect the other version is 4,

exit line is directly after the print line but seems to not work.
print "End of script\n"
