Perl DBD/DBI for SQL Server

we have ODBC drivers to connect to SQL Server from a unix box.
I looked at cspan.org for Perl DBD/DBI with sql server and I
don't see one. Is there a place from where I can download
perl DBD/DBI for SQLServer.

Thanks.

I believe you use DBD::ODBC in this case, but I could be completely
wrong. I don't use DBI, and I don't connect to MS SQL Server from Unix.

You could check out www.freetds.org. I believe they have a DBI thing
too.

Great. It sure looks like there can be a possible perl to SQL Server.
I will download and try it.

thanks.

Hmm, I think one of my guys at work does this. (Connects to SQL server via
Perl.)

thanks.
