FAQ
Just uploaded to CPAN. This is a development release as I've introduced
two significant changes which I'm waiting on feedback for.

=head2 Changes in DBD::ODBC 1.23_2 January 26, 2010

Fixed bug in Makefile.PL which could fail to find unixODBC/iODBC
header files but not report it as a problem. Thanks to Thomas
J. Dillman and his smoker for finding this.

Fixed some compiler warnings in dbdimp.c output by latest gcc wrt to
format specifiers in calls to PerlIO_printf.

Added the odbc_force_bind_type attribute to help sort out problems
with ODBC Drivers which support SQLDescribeParam but describe the
parameters incorrectly (see rt 50852). Test case also added as
rt_50852.t.

=head2 Changes in DBD::ODBC 1.23_1 October 21, 2009

makefile.PL changes:
some formatting changes to output
warn if unixodbc headers are not found that the unixodbc-dev package
is not
installed
use $arext instead of "a"
pattern match for pulling libodbc.* changed
warn if DBI_DSN etc not defined
change odbc_config output for stderr to /dev/null
missing / on /usr/local wheb finding find_dm_hdr_files()

New FAQ entries from Oystein Torget for bind parameter bugs in SQL Server.

rt_46597.rt - update on wrong table

Copied dbivport.h from the latest DBI distribution into DBD::ODBC.

Added if_you_are_taking_over_this_code.txt.

Add latest Devel::PPPort ppport.h to DBD::ODBC and followed all
recommendations for changes to dbdimp.c.

Added change to Makefile.PL provided by Shawn Zong to make
Windows/Cygwin work again.

Minor change to Makefile.PL to output env vars to help in debugging
peoples build failures.

Added odbc_utf8_on attribute to dbh and sth handles to mark all
strings coming from the database as utf8. This is for Aster (based on
PostgreSQL) which returns all strings as UTF-8 encoded unicode.
Thanks to Noel Burton-Krahn.
