How can I get data in SQL Server from Unix

The reason I have this question is because we want to upgrade the application running on HPUX to have it to be able to read the information in a SQL Server on NT Server. Since ODBC is actually to support Windows application to access other kinds of database, I don't know whether it provides the features in the opposite way. Or is there any product that will give me this function? I am using Informix database on hpux-11.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion

Re: How can I get data in SQL Server from Unix

If you can write Perl, take a look at the following link,

http://www.linuxgazette.com/issue18/sybase.html

The article describes how to connect to MS SQL server from Linux, but the same technique should apply to other unices as well.
