Surprise -- Sybase still works. From the DBI FAQ:
How do I access a MS SQL Server database from Linux/UNIX?
You have loads of choices (in no particular order):
* using DBI::ProxyServer or DBD::Gofer. You'll need the former if
you use transactions.
* using a commercial ODBC Driver or bridge like the ones from
Easysoft or Openlink.
* using FreeTDS an open source TDS library which includes an ODBC Driver.
* using DBD::Sybase and Sybase libraries.
