Making headway on the Sybase::TdsServer and Sybase::RepAgent perl modules

Remember my Sybase Replication Server: custom built RepAgents with Perl! post back last year? Well, not only am I the new maintainer, but I finally have it working in a test environment. It isn’t ready for a new release for Sybase::TdsServer and Sybase::RepAgent, yet, but expect one soon.

My main development environment for these two modules is:

  • Windows XP SP2
  • ActiveState Perl 5.8.8
  • Sybase Workspace 1.7 (Eclipse based)
    1. EPIC Perl plugin
    2. Subclipse (subversion client)

I’m hoping to get out my first CPAN release to the perl testers within the next month or so. Why the delay? My wife and I are expecting family and friends to stay with us for the next few weeks. That’s a very good thing 🙂

  1. Jason,
    I’m very interested to see where you are with this, especially wrt a PostgreSQL RepAgent. Can you give me an update? When do you plan to upload a new version to CPAN?

  2. I’m hoping to upload a new version to CPAN sometime in January. A lot of things have been put on hold as my wife is currently 9 months pregnant. 🙂

    The original code was built around the perl 5.0005 version, the original author seems to have written it as you would a C program. That’s not a bad thing but is rather unusual to see in a perl module. Programming preferences 😉
