Use Sybase::DBlib or Sybase::CTlib

(Both are included in the Sybperl distribution:

http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/authors/Michael_Peppler/sybperl-2.09_05.tar.gz

) Alternatively, you can get it done with DBI

http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/modules/by-module/DBI/DBI-1.02.tar.gz

and DBD::Sybase

http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/modules/by-module/DBD/DBD-Sybase-0.09.tar.gz

But the DBI/DBD solution is alpha.
