Requires the Sybase Open Client (DB-Library) package. It contains Windows DLL support for Tcl 7.6 and Tcl 8.0, a CT-Lib compatibility layer, accepts Tcl variables for bindings. Also works with the Sybase ASE for Linux. Version 2.5 was the last version to support Tcl 7.6. Version 3.0 includes Windows and Mac pre-compiled support, but only supports Tcl 8.x.

TclX is recommended.

LV: The above code is more 5 years old! Has there truly been no change in Sybase over these years, and no bugs in the sybtcl code? Actually, I know developers who've had bugs, as well as questions, but they were unable to locate assistance. They eventually rewrote the program to not use Tcl any longer.
