If you are starting out, and have no particular previous experience
with the C language APIs, then I would suggest you use CTlib. It's the
API that Sybase recommends everyone use for new code, and it's the API
that will receive improvements as the dataserver changes.
DBlib *is* a little easier to use, but it does not support everything
(for example numeric/decimal).
