The older DBlibrary-based BCP API is limited in use against 12.5. You
can't use it to load row-locked tables, or partitioned tables, or
char/varchar over 255 bytes, etc.
But you can use Sybase::BLK instead - it's essentially the same
syntax, but uses the CTlib based BLK interface.
Requires sybperl 2.14 or later.
