howto connect on microsoft SQL Server from HP-UX

Posted by Jonay Herrera on 2007-08-24 03:27

hello,

I try to make a simple perl-script to connect to a sql server database. I know that i need to use DBI module but wich DBI module can I use on HP-UX to connect to a windows server with SQL-Server. and how ? because I don't found any usable driver for sql-server. I fonud for oracle , informix , mysql ... but not SQL SERVER :-(

thanks in advance,

Jonay

And this tutorial discusses one of them.

You don't necessarily have to use this ODBC product, or even the ODBC approach, but the tutorial does provide a good description of the parts involved in setting up a connection.
