 Connecting to SQL Server from Unix, Perl

Hi,
    We have a entire web site based on perl5 and apache web server.  it is
all running on a dec unix machine. The time has come to build a sql database
into this system, and we have both an NT Server and a copy of SQL Server 6.0
which are not being used (don't ask me, i just got here).  Obviously I am
very interested in connecting the two systems, but haven't really feasible
link.
    Has anyone connected to a sql server from perl 5 using DBI? DBI::ODBC?
    Is there a reliable odbc driver for sql server for unix?
    Has anyone set up a connection to sql server from a unix machine in the
context of a web server?
    I would be very interested in hearing any suggestions, thanks in
advance.

    aaron.

Aaron,

 Do a web search for Sybperl.  Also there is an ODBC for perl.  Haven't
tried either myself

The only solution I kown is to used the "Sybase Client API". That what is
written in MSDN, and we are about to install such a solution where a UNIX
computer is connected to a SQL Database. Everything seems to work !

Because both Sybase and SQL Server share the same history, Sybase client
API could be used with both SQL server. You need to write some C functions
with the API.
