Hi all,

I am wondering how the Sybase password is passed to the server when using
Sybperl. Is it encrypted somehow or is it in the clear?

For example, with this code, is $pwd encrypted by Sybperl:

    use Sybase::DBlib;

    $dbh = new Sybase::DBlib 'sa', $pwd, $server, 'test_app';

Thanks in advance.
