Well, yes, but not realy many!

Ok, I've checked some days ago.
There is about one page in Release Notes of Version one and some lines
in version 1.5...
But it would be much easier to add the documentation comments like in
ib_udf.sql form firebird UDF directory.

HB> Oh, and Appendix I of "The Firebird Book" has all you ever wanted to know
HB> about the functions in ib_udf, fbudf and FreeUdfLib.
Well I've ordered it, but neither amazon nor my local book shop can
deliver it till now :-)

Ok, one point I was looking for:

Release note 1.0 say for DOW and SDOW functions: "The return strings
can be localized."
My question: How?
