It was always possible to see the output - just a question of defining
the correct message handler (for dblib) or server callback (for ctlib).
User-defined error handlers have been part of sybperl since 1992 or so
Of course sybperl *really* comes into its own for larger applications,
in particular when some form of data conversion is necessary (when
moving data between servers, for example)
