sybperl is a thin wrapper around the Sybase C APIs. It's a lot more
mature than DBI/DBD::Sybase (I've been working on it for 9 years :-)
and it's maybe more natural to use for someone who already knows the
Sybase APIs (or MS's DBlibrary). It's a little more powerfull/flexible
than DBI, though obviously less portable.
It's still actively maintained and developped (by yours truly)
