I maintained a Perl distro including Sybase at a former employer. If I recall correctly, the Sybase client libraries are easy to get ahold of from Sybase.

ONly problem with it is that while I can run sqsh -i filename to run the sql in the file, I can't do sqsh -C 'select * from ... ' It tells me there's no data for -C.
