Thanks Emmanuel,

This brings me to my current really annoying problem. How do I ammend a static schema in DBIx::Class so that DBIC knows the datatype is numeric/int and doesn't do something silly like put quotes around numbers?

The documentation in DBIC is prolific. But prolific is only more annoying when you can't find what you're looking for.

Hi Todd,

Yes, I am actually working a lot with Sybase and 
DBIx::Class. As a good point you can have a look at the 
Manual on CPAN for DBIx::Class. There are a lot of good 
A problem I am facing very often is the support of columns 
type. It looks like DBD::Sybase does not do the difference 
between  VARCHAR, INT, etc.. thus it lead often to error 
from sybase about it when querying or inserting data into 
database. What I meant is that using DBIx::Class as showed 
in example does not always work as expected like in the 
example. It looks like DBIx::Class always quote values in 
SQL query. So I don't really know if it is because of 
DBD::Sybase or DBIx::Class itself. So be carefull with that.

So here is an example of a connection and query to Sybase 
with DBIx::Class

my $schema = 
$dbuser, $password, { AutoCommit => 1 });

my $dbh = $schema->storage()->dbh();

my $orgset = 
$schema->resultset('MyDB::Organism')->search({id => $id});

while(my $o = $orgset->next()){
	print "ID=",$o->id(),"\n";
	print "Name=",$o->name(),"\n";

Each column as its own method with DBIx::Class which is very 

Hope this little help will help to start.
