I'm not exactly sure what you are asking, but here's an example of
connecting to a server using CTlib:
my $dbh = new Sybase::CTlib 'user', 'password', 'server';
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"
Hope this helps!
