Subject: Sybperl + NT?
Date: Jul 31 2000 3:37PM

This might sound like an odd question, but I have a CGI script that utilizes
Sybperl and the CTlib module, and have been requested to port the script to
an NT box. Since the NT box doesn't have Sybase installed on it, what other
way is there to reach the database (located on a separate HP-UX server).
I've really only had to write perl scripts for my unix boxes, so the
cross-platform applications are a little fuzzy to me at the moment.

This is a known problem with some versions of the 11.1.1 openclient on 
solaris. The problem is that dbpoll() misbehaves. 

So if you don't use dbpoll() you're fine. Alternatively, contact
Sybase to get a newer version of OpenClient.
