I am running a x86 RHL9 box and want to connect to a MS SQL server via a perl script. I think that I successfully installed freetds and DBD::Sybase. I think that I am able to connect to the server via a tsql statement.

[root@npsdev bin]# tsql -S -U jsmith -P angst123
locale is "en_US.UTF-8"
charset is "UTF-8"

I have read thru the FreeTDS readme as well as the DBD::Sybase documentation and still can't get where I want to go.

Several questions.

1) With the above info, does it look like I have successfully established a connection from my RHL9 box to the M$ sql server?

2) Does anyone have a test perl script that they have, that I can use to run a sample query? (maybe something like a "show tables"??)

I have searched on several message boards and they all lead me back to the vendor/package web pages.

Advice? - (Chris- Acid?)
Thanks a million,
