 Connecting to SQL Server from Unix & Perl
I need to connect to a SQL Server 2000 Database on a Win2K machine from a
Unix Server Running Apache & Perl 5.

I think I may need to use the DBI module?

Is there a reliable way of going about this?

Thanks

Using the Perl DBI module isn't enough... you'll need an ODBC driver middleware installed on the
UNIX box itself, so that it can talk to the SQL Server.  UNIX doesn't know ODBC natively, so you'll
need some middleware to make this happen.  One example of this:
