I would not suggest using DBLib bcp calls if your data is huge.  If you are  
handling large data set, using direct sybase bcp calls is more efficient.  An  
example (bcp in) is:

$bcpCommand = "$ENV{SYBASE}/bin/bcp $db..$Table in $inFile -f $fmtFile -U  
$user -P $psw -S $DBSERVER -b $batchSize -m $maxNumOfErrors -e $errFile";
@output = `$bcpCommand`;

REF:  Sybase utilities manual.

Points to Know:
1.  Failover roll back;
2.  If you have bcp v.11, go back use v10. as v11 has a bug.
