unixODBC config problem

Hi all,

I'm using mxodbc with a Sybase odbc driver on ubuntu 12.04 with unixODBC 
2.3x. I am accessing a Sybase database with a library charset called 
marc-8. On Windows 7, I can access this database using mxodbc and 
transmit the characters faithfully if I set the odbc manager to 
Communication Charset = No Conversion, and possibly Client Charset = OEM 
(although I think this last setting is getting ignored). On ubuntu with 
unixodbc, my character data out of the box is getting mangled. Can you 
tell me how to set the driver to use the same settings I have on my 
Windows machine? I can't seem to find any info on the relevant 
parameters for odbc.ini.

Thanks,

-dale

Installing our Python packages with pip 1.5

Dear Users,

the latest pip 1.5 made it really annoying to install packages
which are not hosted on PyPI, but instead are made available on
other servers - at least using the default settings in pip.

In pip 1.4.2 and earlier, it was possible to install the packages
with e.g.

pip install egenix-mx-base

With pip 1.5, the only way to download eGenix packages via PyPI
indirection is to use e.g.

pip install --allow-all-external --allow-unverified egenix-mx-base egenix-mx-base

Until we come up with a better solution, there are two simple
ways to make this more elegant:

pip install -i https://downloads.egenix.com/python/index/ucs2/ egenix-mx-base

or, download the .tar.gz file from our website and point pip directly
at the .tar.gz file:

pip install egenix-mx-base-3.2.7.tar.gz

Note that setuptools 2.1's easy_install still works as expected.

You may ask, why we don't simply upload everything to PyPI. These
are the reasons:

Python 3 port

Sorry if this has been asked many times, but I couldn't find a comment 
on the user list. Can you tell me what plans Egenix has, or does not 
have, to support python 3? I am eager to use it's new asyncio capability 
to do database work.

Thanks,
