include non-key columns in a non-clustered index to reduce IO counts

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190806.aspx shows this lesser known performance trick. If a query uses a particular NCI (non-clustered-index), and all the output fields are “included” on the index, then query won't hit the data pages at all.

How about sybase? http://dba.stackexchange.com/questions/15319/equivalent-of-include-clause-while-creating-non-clustered-index-in-sybase says not supported.
