I'm not exactly sure what you are asking, but here's an example of
connecting to a server using CTlib:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use strict;
use Sybase::CTlib;

my $dbh = new Sybase::CTlib 'user', 'password', 'server';
if(!defined($dbh)) {
    die "Can't connect to server 'server'";
}

At this point the $dbh will be connected to the server.

You obviously need to supply the correct values for "user", "password"
and "server" for your particular installation.

If the login fails the $dbh variable will be set to the special "undef"
value.

Hope this helps!

Michael
