Author a07272
Dear All

I am currently doing a number pattern analyzing program. I use Firebird
as my database, Delphi as my dev. tool.

I use only 3 table, and no more then 10000 rows of data. Each data is
less then 200 byte.

But after program finish, the database it grow to 202MB . Then I
backup the database, it shink back to 56KB. Can anyone tell me what's
happening? Or anyway I can keep the database size as small as possible.
