$SYBASE is set to /opt/sybase/sybase32.02 and "ls -l interfaces" reutnrs
that there's a file with rw for all owned by sybase:sybase... This file has
the database we are trying to connect to.
I found a simple script in the archives to test connectivity and when
running it, it fails also "Server name not found in interface file" but when
I open the interface file, the server is the first one listed in there.

From the command line, type 'echo $SYBASE', then look in that directory to
see the interfaces file.

If the script is not being run from the command line, put this statement in
your Perl script:

print $ENV{SYBASE};

and when you run your Perl script it will tell you the directory where the
interaces file lives.
