We are currently using "sp_columns <table_name>" to find out the column
names and data types for any given table. Unfortunately, the sp_columns
procedure is too slow for our purposes and is severely hindering our
application (which is a perl script running on Apache mod_perl with
DBI/DBD::Sybase). Is there a faster way to just find out the column
names and data types for a table? Perhaps there are some internal
tables we can query? Or perhaps to write a striped down, more efficient
version of sp_columns which only provides the bare bones information we
