sqsh should return results directly to stdout like such:

camber (~)2 sqsh -Usa -SJDBC
sqsh-1.5.1 Copyright (C) 1995, 1996 Scott C. Gray

I'd reccomend trying the 1.7 version of sqsh as it is know to work. I 
haven't tried 1.4 in some months and have no idea if it is working.

The second thing is to try building PHP in CGI mode (don't add 
--with-apache) Then use the php executable to run the script like:

camber (~/php-3.0.8)2 ./php test1.php

This will remove apache from the equation and hopefully put us on the right

In PHP I can sybase_connect() and sybase_select_db() just fine and get 
positive identifiers returned. However, as soon as I do a sybase_query() 
the page times out.

I can't find anything about testing with SQSH. I have SQSH compiled and it
connects and I can, apparently, query. But I don't have any idea how to 
check the results of a select statement to see if any data was in fact 
returned or if it's just broken period.

I've been screwing with this for three weeks now thus I am three weeks 
behind. I would use ODBC but there zero worthwhile docs for using ODBC w/
FreeBSD and PHP.

This is a nightmare...
