Subject GBAK -v n feature
Author Stefan Heymann

I just read the Firebird 1.0.3 release notes (30 pages, vs. 162 for
2.0.0 ;-) and found a description of a feature in GBAK:

GBAK has new COUNTER option for -V(erbose) switch

The -V (Verbose) option of GBAK now allows for a 'counter' value
to be specified -- i.e. GBAK ... -V 20000

This value will provide additional user feedback, as the data rows
are backed-up or restored. Once GBAK has processed the defined
number of rows (either backed-up/restored or re-indexed), GBAK
will print a message indicating the running row count value.

By default, the counter value is 10,000.

I just tried that with my Firebird 1.5.3 and 2.0.0 installations and
it doesn't work. Has it been removed from the code again?
