What Sybperl module are you using?

for DBI ( DBD::Sybase )
$dbh = DBI->connect($connectstr, $user,$pass, {

if( ! $dbh->do($SQL) ) 
	# process error
	# look for duplicate key error code
	if( $dbh->err == 2601 ) {
#	  process specifics here to deal with the situation
#         where key already exists	

in Sybase::CTlib
you can define callbacks for all messages
ct_callback(CS_CLIENTMSG_CB, \&msg_cb);
ct_callback(CS_SERVERMSG_CB, \&srv_cb);

And define functions srv_cb & msg_cb to process messages.

Look at Michael's SybTools module for a good example of this
type of code.

Depends on if you are interested in only duplicate key entry errors 
or all errors as to how you might want to handle this.
