Subject Status of Firebird interclient (was Re: Borland or FireBird ?)

Status of interclient at Firebird.

I've been heavily involved in Firebird, but come from a strong
java/linux background and in fact that's the way I use it.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to make it out of the forest of
interbase to get into interclient much, I've built it locally a few
times and Tom Coleman changed the build script for it, and Torsten added
a few bug patches. Apart from that it's pretty much sat by itself. I
can tell you that the code is fairly clean probably because it's also
more recent.

I did look at interclient 2.0 code vs interclient 1.5 and the
differences were fairly minor, enough that i'd say to work with 2.0
source rather than 1.5.

Any help would be appreciated, and if you have questions along the way
I'll be happy to answer them.
