Well, the isql command enable the sybase DB connection.

isql -Usa -Ptest -I /opt/sybase/interfaces << EOF

isql: is to access the sybase DB
-U : User name
-P : password
-I : Is the sybase DB connection interface file.
"/opt/sybase/interfaces" actually this file is exist for any Sybase DB server for connection params, liek the SID in Oracle DB.

That's all what i have right now, and hope it added some value.
