There are examples in the API guide if you are programming in C/C++. This can be
downloaded from You will also find examples in
the (wait for it) 'examples' directory of every Firebird or InterBase install.
If are using Object Pascal the code needed can be seen in the code for the IBX
components. There is also some (quite raw) Object Pascal code code on the Free
Pascal site that connects via API calls.
