HI Ed,

You will probably have to do a select from the sysdatabases table, like so:

select name from sysdatabases
order by name



I don't think DBD-Sybase has a specific command or routine that returns
table names.

Subject: listing tables from within DBD::Sybase


Hi Michael,

First of all, thanks for a great tool. I've been using the jdbc driver,
but I'm happy and relieved to have a DBD driver available for Sybase.

I have a question that I did not see addressed in the docs. I've got a
remote database I'm working with. Is there a command callable from
DBD::Sybase that will give me a list of the tables in my database; does
this command also work on MSSQL databases?

Thank you,

Ed
