Subject UDFs in LINUX
Author Todd Brasseur
Hello Everyone,

We have an application that works well with Windows and we are trying
to get it working using Linux for one client. Firebird Version 1.03
and Mandrake for Linux.

Everything seems to be working fine except UDFS. We downloaded the
FreeUDFlibC which is intended to be used with Linux.

The problem we have is that anytime we select using a UDF that returns
by 'VALUE' it works: Select f_Year(SaleDate) from SalesHeader

But when we select using a UDF that returns by 'REFERENCE' the server
hangs: Select F_Left(CofT,2) from SalesHeader

Is there something that we have missed or need to configure?
