This actually works in Interbase 5.6 via the INPUT command. This example is
taken from a production system:

INPUT Soc0S.sql;
INPUT Soc1D.sql;
INPUT Soc2G.sql;
INPUT Soc3T.sql;
INPUT Soc4C.sql;
INPUT Soc5P.sql;
INPUT Soc6I.sql;
INPUT Soc7U.sql;
INPUT Soc8D.sql;
INPUT Soc9X.sql;

However, I have heard from one developer that this no longer works in
Interbase 6. I have not had a chance to verify the problem but if it exists
I would think this would be an easy thing to restore.
