You're absolutely right! I went back to the main README file and,
doggone it, there it was. That what's happens when you 'make install'
one day and 'make test' the other. My mistake (probably) was not
doing it all at once, because I *was* reading the README during
the 'make install' but never thought to refer to it again the next AM
when I did the 'make test'. Silly me. --Thanks

You need to edit the PWD file to reflect the server, user and password
that you want to test with. Make test doesn't use the $DSQUERY environment

Subject: make test fails
I'm new to perl and *very* new to sybperl, and *very* new to sybase
(whoa, I not be thy sybase dba, however, just the perl/sybperl apprentice)
I've installed perl 5.005_03 and sybperl 2.10_02. When I ran 'make test'
everything works fine, but when I ran 'make test' for sybperl, it fails.
Sybase error: Server name not found in interface file.
Can't call method "sql" on an undefined value at t/bcp.t line 49.
Ok, here goes my stupid question(s), the file $SYBASE/interfaces
file clearly shows the name specified in the $DSQUERY environment
variable, and I can correctly startup and run an isql with my $DSQUERY
and $DBUSER settings. What does this error message really mean?
If anyone has a quickie answer, please help me. If its complicated, and
you're going to tell me to seek out the local sybase dba folks (arrggghh!),
ok, then I'll venture forth, risk life and political limb and ask someone
What could be the problem? ...besides my limited knowledge, that is :-(,
which I'm working hard to correct.
Also, say one knows SQL fairly well, and even knows some Oracle and
and a bit of Unify, where is the best place to go to learn about Sybase?
anyone recommend and 3rd party books/websites, etc. Do I *need* the
Thanks for the help!
