Script and log attached.

I'll see if I can install 0.82 soonish.  I gave a brief try yesterday
and ran into some build problems; I'll try again when I have some time.

With my proc declared as:
create proc proc_foo (@moo datetime, @foo datetime output) as
begin select @foo = @moo; select * from dano; end


my $proc_sth = $dbh->prepare(q|
    declare @foo datetime
    exec proc_foo ?, @foo output
$proc_sth->execute('2008-05-09 12:34:56');
    while (my @foo = $proc_sth->fetchrow_array) {
        print join(', ', @foo);
    redo if $proc_sth->{syb_more_results};

prints the usual result set (from the select * from dano statement) and
prints the record from the 2nd recordset, which is the OUTPUT parameter.
The DBD::Sybase documentation is actually pretty good on this.
