I have a ms sql server running on and I need to test my perl script against it but I dont know how to establish the connection.

I have read this page http://search.cpan.org/doc/TIMB/DBI-1.20/DBI.pm and tried to connect like this:


use DBI;
use CGI;
$q = new CGI;

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
$data_source = "dbi:mSQL:database=name;host=xx.xx.xxx.xxx";
$username = "something";
$password = "somethingelse";

$dbh = DBI->connect($data_source, $username, $password);

But I get nothing... I get a blank page with only the content-type inside it.

What am I doing wrong?
