Subject Determining database ODS (pre 11.1)
Author Adam
Hello Group,

Is there any way of determining the ODS of a database for pre 11.1 ODS
(from a client connection, not gstat)? Specifically, I need to know
whether a given database was built with Firebird 1.5 or 2.1.

In Firebird 2.1/ ODS 11.1, I can run:

select mon$ods_major||'.'||mon$ods_Minor as ODS
from mon$database;

but the monitoring tables obviously don't exist in older versions. If
not, I can work around it by catching the exception.
