hi robert,

as someone who has used ibconsole, Marathon, ib_sql, and now ibexpert, i can
offer these comments:

1. An excellent free tool is Jason Wharton's ib_sql tool
2. IBExpert (199 euro, somewhat less USD) is an **excellent** tool. It has
**so** many time saving features that make it an absolute steal.
3. ibconsole is well...not the cream of the crop and IMHO not worth its
price. ;^)

There may be other out there that are better the IBE, but I can honestly say
that it saves you so much time that the price is really just about
irrelevant unless you are programming as a hobby...and even then its worth
