My local perl hacker informs me that the current version of TeraPerl does not understand password encryption at V2R5.1 and beyond. Because
TeraPerl is standalone (only perl needed), I suspect that the problem is that the package has implemented the underlying TCP/CLIv2 protocols
internally and the old protocols did not include encryption. If enhanced it's likely to be a for-cost upgrade because the developer, a former
student, is now working for a living.
The workaround, and possible future direction for Teradata and perl, appears to be the perl ODBC interface also from CPAN (I think - I'm not a
perl user). With the ODBC interface, the perl DBD connects to the Teradata via the standard Teradata ODBC driver, which allows the driver to
isolate perl from the messy interface details.
