I pass the server name, port, user name, password in the connection string.
My odbc.in only has the following linesi:
[SQL Native Client]
Description = SQL Native Client
Driver = /usr/local/lib/libtdsodbc.so
Setup = /usr/local/lib/libtdsS.so
UsageCount = 1
FileUsage = 1
When I run tsql with no parameters:
locale is "en_US.UTF-8"
locale charset is "UTF-8"
