This utility does not accept the @data parameter to read in options from a configuration file.

If you are using the fast launchers, changes to language settings are not detected by Sybase Central or Interactive SQL. In order for the new language settings to take affect in these tools, you must disable their fast launchers (Choose Tools > Options, and then clear the checkmark next to Enable Fast Launcher on the General tab), change the language settings, restart the tool, and then re-enable the fast launchers.
