 Sybperl Bulkcopy Program Problem

New to the world of Sybase & Sybperl, I am attempting to
automate the population of Sybase tables with the bcp_
bulkcopy routines in the following way:
1) set up sybperl bulkcopy (bcp_init, bcp_meminit)
2) read ascii data into Perl variables
3) OTHER STUFF (do lookups & updates on existing Sybase tables
   depending on the values of key fields in the ascii data)
4) set up output record & bulkcopy manipulated ascii data to
   one main Sybase table.
I appear to be running into problems doing 3) having done 1) above.
For example, I appear to be able to do 1), 2) & 4) together, and
2) & 3) together, but not 1), 2), 3) & 4) together as I desire.  Am
I missing something?  I am changing strategy to using sql calls to
do "inserts" rather than bulkcopy, or write 2 programs -- the first
to do the fancy stuff & the second to bulkcopy.
Any advice (particularly if accompanied by pointers to complete
programming examples of bulkcopy including methods to sidestep
pesky "logging") would be most welcome.
