in thread Using 64 bit DBD with Sybase 15

Is this with the exact same version of OpenClient, with just the 32/64 bit difference?

Because the 64bit data you get is more correct - and is also what I get with a 32bit 15.7 client:

use strict; use DBI; my $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:Sybase:server=foo', 'user, '***'); my $sth = $dbh->prepare("select convert(date, getdate()), convert(time +, getdate())"); $sth->execute; while(my $r = $sth->fetch) { print "@$r\n"; }
which outputs:
$ perl /tmp/ Feb 7 2013 3:06PM
And to me that's as it should be - you're asking for just the date, so no time portion is displayed, or just the time, and no date portion is displayed.

This is with DBD::Sybase 1.14, btw.

    It does seem more correct, but I don't believe it should require me to change the code? Shouldn't this be backward compatible?
