"perldoc DBD::Sybase" says:

       You can get the type of the current result set with
       $sth->{syb_result_type}. This returns a numerical value,
       as defined in $SYBASE/include/cspublic.h:

               #define CS_ROW_RESULT           (CS_INT)4040
               #define CS_CURSOR_RESULT        (CS_INT)4041
               #define CS_PARAM_RESULT         (CS_INT)4042
               #define CS_STATUS_RESULT        (CS_INT)4043
               #define CS_MSG_RESULT           (CS_INT)4044
               #define CS_COMPUTE_RESULT       (CS_INT)4045

       In particular, the return status of a stored procedure is
       returned as CS_STATUS_RESULT (4043), and is normally the
       last result set that is returned in a stored proc execu-

The script in your original posting doesn't use syb_result_type.  It might
be just what the doctor ordered.  Dr. Bill, that is.
