Subject PSQL shortcomings (was IB dumber...)
Author csswa
Hi Burak.

Can you explain a bit more about the 'sth bug' ??

Thanks for your response. I don't have much experience with MSSQL so
hearing others prefer FB/IB in comparison is encouraging. I'm not
ready just yet to let some shortcomings in FB's PSQL sink it for me.
That would be a knee-jerk reaction.

Next week I have a meeting with the client I'm building the db for,
so I need to be sure about committing to FB. At this point it is
still possible to take the schema and deploy in MSSQL, which I know
they have access to.

As I mentioned, there is always the option of sticking to strict
rules: explicitly typecasting all variable/constants in the headers.
Following strict rules is not necessarily a problem. It will just
seem odd having to write a long line of code just to multiply two
simple numbers together.

The other option is shifting all arithmetic calculation to the
client, but this defeats the purpose of having PSQL and making the
server do the hard work.
