Like I said it's a miracle it even works. Considering it's all done with
reverse engineering and keeping up with the continuing efforts of MS to
break it's own standard. There definitely needs to be a better
configuration tools though. I find swat lacking a bit.

But I want to make it clear. I am not complaining. I consider myself
blessed that people of incredibly high intellect and unusual tenacity have
chosen to give away their work for free. As a beneficiary of this immense
generosity I don't feel right to criticize. If I want better docs I should
write them, If I want an easier to use front end I should write it myself
or pay somebody to do it. This is not commercial software, the writers of
the software don't get compensated when I use it. I am grateful they gave
me a gift in the first place. Same with Borland/inprise/interbase/corel.
thank you for giving me interbase I promise to use it and help out if I can.
