Sybase woes

[ #19443 ]
It turns out that we have a Sybase database we need to communicate with from Oracle. I'm not so worried about setting up a gateway (I'll let the DBA setup Transparent Gateway). However, the client software that comes with Sybase is some seriously miserable shit, especially when compared to something like TOAD.

I decided that I could write a UI in less than a day that would be superior to the crap I have now, so I decided to first install DBD::Sybase on my Windows box. Unfortunately, I appear to be missing the 'lib' directory in my Sybase client software. I would download the Open Client software for Solaris and give it a shot there but I don't think it's free.

My next option was to try downloading FreeTDS and install it on my Solaris box. But NOOOOOOOOOOO, it won't build due to yet another linker issue, or a readline issue, or whatever.

Suckage.
