Subject: Re: Sybase home directory question

That is very strange. and both had ../sybase/OCS-12_5 in
them. Why? My CONFIG file clearly has not OCS-12_5 in it. And no variable is
set, and I don't think I had anything set when building SybPerl. Although
that is easy enough to test which I'll probably do later.

The other weird thing is that after fixing and, my test
script DOES work and gives me back the the version string of the server I'm
connecting to, but without having anything else (i.e. $SYBASE_OCS) set. Now
this is great and exactly what I wanted, however not what I expected, after
this didn't work on Linux (had to add ../sybase/OCS to

Any explanation for this?
