Don't know if this helps, but Object Craft have a module
to interface to Sybase ASE from Python at
http://www.object-craft.com.au/projects/sybase/

Might be worth a look.

None here. Have you asked on the py***********@www.object-craft.com.au
mailing list?

Hi,

Sybase Anywhere ASA (ex-watcom sql) is an
odbc-orientated dbms solution from Sybase.

We have been succssful using it from python via
mxodbc both on linux (some tweaking may be
required) and win32 (plain easy).

I have no experience or feedback of ASA
connections through FreeTDS.

It should work as well... I'd be glad to hear
that it does:)

Hello Francois,

Thank you for repling.

I am exately interesting in old ex-wotcom sql oriented products. At the
moment I still use old WatCom 4.0 but I like to transfer to new ASA
products. Becouse I am not so happy with visual products (Visual Basic,
Power Builder etc.), I am looking for nice languague I can easly write
front-end screens in text mode. Python gives me a good fealling for that it
seams it is what I am looking for. I am bit afreraid for stability of Python
and for speed relaibility (it is just an interpreter only).

Please let me know your opinion if any.

Best Regards,

Tomasz

Pythons, though bulky, are apparently quite fast *enough* to swallow
large mammals in one piece, so I don't blame you for being afraid
<wink>.
