How do you call a sybase stored procedure within a unix shell script? The script and the database reside on the same server.  I never did something like this before, even calling a straight sql statement.  An example would be nice.

You can just create a file with the T-SQL statements to call the Stored procedures and pass that file to the isql.

Sample:

file1.sql
---------

use master
go

exec sp_who
go


file2.sh

isql -Ulogin -Ppassword -ifile1.sql -ofile1.out -SSERVERNAME

You can run the file2.sh (you can have all sorts of shell commands in here). It will throw the output to the file1.out

Hope this helps!
