Hi Alan,

Thanks for the quick response. The program is IBX based with around
180 tables in the gdb developed for the last several years, I have
heard problems in the IB6, but fortunately I have not yet
encountered any, it works so well in Windows and Linux that I don't
like to do a complete switch from IB6 to FB, as long as FB can be
compatible with IB6 at GDB level, that's good enough for me.
