Not knowing which version of ADOdb is in the library it's difficult to
comment, but certainly the PHP end is transparent for Interbase/Firebird.
ADOdb should call up a different driver internally and there are a couple of
niggles with BLOB which have a work around in the current ADOdb.
Firebird adodb version is 5.04, I thought it was odd that delphi Editor keeps poping up in run | debug | breakpoint at a spot in adodb.inc that has something to do with blob access even when I'm not even using BLOB actions... Its also giving a warning about blob access. If you like I can run delphi in database debug mode and see what details it has. Perhaps the delphi IDE isnt so screwed up after all....
