About Firebird

Firebird is a relational database offering many ANSI SQL standard features that runs on Linux, Windows, and a variety of Unix platforms. Firebird offers excellent concurrency, high performance, and powerful language support for stored procedures and triggers. It has been used in production systems, under a variety of names, since 1981.

The Firebird Project is a commercially independent project of C and C++ programmers, technical advisors and supporters developing and enhancing a multi-platform relational database management system based on the source code released by Inprise Corp (now known as Borland Software Corp) on 25 July, 2000.

The attached file contains my translation of the Firebird headers to PowerBASIC.

Has anyone got a working example of Firebird using these headers.  I am sure the hearders are fine but I can not get SQL statements to be excepted.  I keep getting an "Undefined Name" error (ambiguous to say the least) when trying the execute the most basic statement.  The exact statement runs fine in FlameRobin.  I belive the error is referring to the table name.  I have tried loads of variations but have yet to crack the puzzle.

I never have used it. I translated the headers because someone was interested and promised to post example(s), but... Therefore, I have no plans to update them.

James Klutho

Thanks  Jose.  The headers are fine and you have done so much already.  I can open a database a retrieve a lot of info about it but it chokes on SQL statements and I have yet to figure out why. When I get this nasty brat going in the right direction, I will post some examples.  I was going use ODBC on Firebird but when I saw these headers, I thought I would give the API a whirl.  Jim

Well I got over my statement problem!  It was too stupid to admit publicly.  Thanks for listening to me vent.  Jim
