I would like to use fsql on a Redhat Linux Release 5.2 to access a Sybase server.  Does anyone know where I can get a version for this platform.

You do know that RedHat 5.2 comes with postgresql packages including one called postgresql-client.  Beyond this I know very little about sql except what sql stands for.

postgresql is a set of software packages including clients and servers.

Since you are using RH 5.2 try "rpm -q postgresql-clients" to see if you already have the clients installed (it will print the version number if installed or complaine that is not installed).

If it is installed you can try the command "psql".  There are other commands and documentation included in the "postgresql-clients" package.

Have you tried postgresql?  Since you are using RedHat Linux 5.2 you can install the client package as "rpm -ivh postgresql-clients".  Try the command "psql" it is an sql client (I can only imagine that it is similar to "fsql").

I hope this works.
