Subject Re: [firebird-support] Aggregate UDF?
Author Car Toper

for the record, in my original post I stated "standard deviation among
others". I don't actually need standard deviation, I used that
because I figured it would be the best 'complex' algorithm solved with
an aggregate udf.

The short answer is: Firebird doesn't support aggregate udf as of
today, so the problem will need to be solved some other way.

Now that I know this, I am starting to forulate other solutions, just
not as clean and simple as a aggregate udf:)
