Subject: DBD::Sybase patch: remove whitespace from prompted input
Date: Oct 20 2003 11:01AM

This patch to DBD::Sybase's Makefile.PL trims all whitespace from
user input, not just a single newline.  You have to be quite
cack-handed to accidentally type a trailing space, but I am, and
it can be puzzling when it happens.  Since space never appears in
server names etc. it's simpest to remove it.
