Yes, they're called "Feature Requests". You can see my latest list
(Draft #2) on the Firebird web site.

I was wondering when you were going to get around to asking this
question ... ;-)

A lot of people would argue that the external file feature is enough, or
that eternal files should be extended to support delimited files, but
I'm of a different opinion.

As we've been exchanging messages, I have been thinking about the design
for a completely new tool, which would work with any file type; fixed
length or delimited. The tool would support import and export
functionality... and of course, would run like the wind!

This is much more difficult then it sounds. Unlike other RDBMS's
Interbase/Firebird doesn't maintain a row count for a given data table.
Accordingly, it would be very difficult to determine the % completed.

Or did you mean something else?

I can log your requests if you'd like? (I'm in the middle of adding
other items from another wishlist, so 1 or 2 more isn't a problem)
