Subject: Re: Concurrent usage both Sybase and FreeTDS

I have a DBD::Freetds that I built 18 months ago (or maybe even 2 years
ago) that you should be able to use. I'll upload it to my web site later
today, or tomorrow if I don't have the time today (there's a DBD::FreeTDS
0.10 on my website already, but it's not really adequate).

Note that I haven't worked on this code in a long time, but it should be
good enough to handle your problems and to allow you to use both FreeTDS
and Sybase libs in the same perl script.

Subject:    Concurrent usage both Sybase and FreeTDS


I have to a project that will move data between Microsoft SQL server
(2003) and Sybase server. The only way to access the SQL server is with
FreeTDS (I'm using 0.63), tested with SQSH. The Sybase servers must be
used using Sybase clients libraries (company rule).

Does anyone has experience on how to work with both databasesin the same
perl program. I was hoping to duplicate "DBD::Sybase" into
"DBD::FreeTDS" that will be linked against the FreeTDS libraries, and
then I can use 'dbi::Sybase' to access the Sybase server, and
'dbi::FreeTDS' to access the SQL server.

My major concern is how to keep the '' separate. I'm not sure if
this is possible, and if there is a problem here.

Any advice will be appreciated.
