This really is application specific. Only you know what your program is doing and what kind of messages you want to pass your users. You need to use whatever features that are available in the programming environment that is calling Firebird (or InterBase).

Take a look at the shell command. It will allow you to call echo. You can embed this in the script. Don't forget to use -m so as to merge the error stream with the output stream.
