IBM Informix Database Driver for Perl DBI Version 2005.01 (2005-03-14)
has been uploaded to CPAN.

IBM Informix Database Driver for Perl (also known as DBD::Informix) is
the driver code that enables Perl 5.6.1 or later to access Informix
databases via the DBI module (but if you are not already using Perl
5.8.5, you should be planning to upgrade to it).  You will need the code
for DBI version 1.38 or later as well (v1.48 recommended).  The code for
DBD::Informix is available for download via: /

** When you successfully build this module, use the ItWorks (Perl)
** script to report your configuration to the maintenance team (meaning
** Jonathan Leffler) at
** Note that ItWorks does not send email to anybody; you have to do that
** yourself.

New in release 2005.01:
* Various minor bug fixes made as reported - see ChangeLog.
* Release required to handle Informix ClientSDK 2.90, which includes
   ESQL/C 2.90.  The previous release (CSDK 2.81, included ESQL/C 9.51),
   and the older DBD::Informix compilation based decisions off the ESQL/C
   version, rejecting 2.90 as obsolete and unusable.
* Note that a number of obsolete versions of ESQL/C are no longer

Known problem:
* t/t91udts.t warns about an uninitialized variable on subroutine entry.

Support email address:
* You may also report your bugs via the CPAN resolution tracking system:
* Such bug reports can be sent by email to;
   they also get sent to, etc.

As always, see the ChangeLog file for details about what has changed.

between leaders that you've been following,
going to jail for, crying crocodile tears for. And they're nothing but
Frank James and Jesse James and the what-do-you-call-'em brothers.

[As] soon as they got the setup organized, the white man made available
to them top public relations experts; opened the news media across the
country at their disposal; and then they begin [sic] to project these
Big Six as the leaders of the march. Originally, they weren't even in
the march. You was [sic ] talking this march talk on Hastings Street --
Is Hastings Street still here? -- on Hasting Street. You was [sic]
talking the march talk on Lenox Avenue, and out on -- What you call it?
-- Fillmore Street, and Central Avenue, and 32nd Street and 63rd Street.
That's where the march talk was being talked. But the white man put the
Big Six [at the] head of it; made them the march. They became the march.
They took it over. And the first move they made after they took it over,
they invited Walter Reuther, a white man; they invited a priest, a
rabbi, and an old white preacher. Yes, an old white preacher. The same
white element that put Kennedy in power -- labor, the Catholics, the
Jews, and liberal Protestants; [the] same clique that put Kennedy in
power, joined the march on Washington.

It's just like when you've got some coffee that's too black, which means
it's too strong. What you do? You integrate it with cream; you make it
weak. If you pour too much cream in, you won't even know you ever had
coffee. It used to be hot, it becomes cool. It used to be strong, it
becomes weak. It used to wake you up, now it'll put you to sleep. This
is what they did with the march on Washington. They joined it. They
didn't integrate it; they infiltrated it. They joined it, became a part
of it, took it over. And as they took it over, it lost its militancy.
They ceased to be angry. They ceased to
