That doesn't seem to be the problem.

** This code DOES work: **
** (this is a perl program with .pl extension run at the command prompt) **
#!/usr/local/bin/perl


chdir("/usr/people/sah18/myperl/snp/genbank");
@acresults = glob("*.txt");

$length = @acresults;
print "the length of acresults is $length\n";

use Sybase::CTlib;
$dbh = new Sybase::CTlib 'user', 'password', 'server';
$dbh->ct_sql("use dbname");

** This code does NOT work: **
** This program is name with .cgi extension and is run within a browser
window: **
#!/usr/local/bin/perl

BEGIN {
    $ENV{SYBASE} = '/usr/sybase';
}

use CGI qw/:standard/;
use Sybase::CTlib;

$dbh = new Sybase::CTlib 'user', 'password', 'server';
$dbh->ct_sql("use dbname");


Once again, any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
