./configure  --with-apxs --with-sybase-ct=/opt/sybase-11.9.2/ --with-gd

The ct library was fetched from    Yet, this is a ASE Open
Client, it compied just fine.

The below query works fine,  no problem
$sql = 'SELECT fname FROM customer';
echo "Debug: " . $sql ."\n";
$qry = sybase_query($sql, $db);
while($row = sybase_fetch_array($qry)){
while (list ($key, $val) = each ($row)) {
    echo "$key => $val<br>";

BUT,  when I try to quote the column,  like:
$sql = 'SELECT "fname" FROM customer';
echo "Debug: " . $sql ."\n";
$qry = sybase_query($sql, $db);
while($row = sybase_fetch_array($qry)){
while (list ($key, $val) = each ($row)) {
    echo "$key => $val<br>";
.. things get messy,  then every row in the result set has 'fname' as value !
As a mather of fact,  not even "DBA"."fname"  which is a common syntax, is allowed.

Is this because of the ASE OpenClient  ?  Anybody else being able to quote
fielnames in queries when using ASA 7..0 ?

I also tested the php connection agains an Windows ASA7 clean install, and asademo as db,  but the php queries fails on quotes even there.

php.ini is not modified.

This is not a PHP bug, but an error in your understanding
of SQL.

select "fname" from anytable

Will return "fname" as many times as there are
rows in the table.

Try, instead

'select fname from anytable'
"select fname from anytable"

And buy an SQL book.
