Why use "DBD::SybaseASE" instead of "DBD::Sybase"?


Has anyone used the new proprietary DBD::SybaseASE from Sybase (

I tested it rather extensively over the weekend and personally don't see any real benefit of using it over Michael Peppler's DBD::Sybase ( The performance is nearly identical between the two drivers from the testing I've done.

This isn't a "it's proprietary so it's bad" question, but a "what would justify the switch to DBD::SybaseASE"?
