Subject Can you get firebird to check a database existence ?
Author Craig Stevens
HI All,

Can firebird do something similar to delphi's FileExist function given only the database Alias name ???

I have a need to confirm a restored database works by testing to see if the restore db exists, but given only an aliasname it seems not possible, but im sure it is..if Firebird restores the db to the path as per the aliases.conf file, how can i obtain this path from the alias ?? is there a function i am not aware of ???
