I believe this cannot be achieved with a combination of perl and Sybase's

I've not heard of any plans for any bulk insert mechanism in DBI. I
could add something for the DBD::Sybase module specifically (i.e. in a
non-portable way), but I've found that doing BCP style operations in
perl is mostly a waste of time, and there are usually ways of
achieving the same results by combining perl and Sybase's bcp utility.
However, my opinion could be changed by a good argument :-)
