Subject Re: [Firebird-Java] Database URL and database alias
Author Mr. Richard Tomkins
Thank you for the information.

If I follow, does that mean that @prefix@ is a variable
for the build? I do not have enough knowledge to have figured this
out on my own and it didn't fit what I knew about C or BASIC.

I did do the long path thing and it worked and then did the alias thing.

I did not understand a lot of this so I was wondering.

Regards, Richard
