I've recently written code using SQLite (C# .NET, using
System.Data.SQLite) ... decided to try Firebird.

To install Firebird: Visual Studio 2013 -> File -> New -> Project,
etc. ---------- then Tools -> Library Package Manager -> Manage NuGet
Packages -> search "firebird" -> Firebird ADO.NET Data provider ->
Install (button).

Resulted in a) References -> FirebirdSql.Data.FirebirdClient, and b)
FirebirdSql.Data.FirebirdClient.5.8.0 subdir ... with Firebird .dll's.

1) Was the the correct procedure?

2) Can I create a Firebird database file? ... as I did with SQLite ...
System.Data.SQLite.SQLiteConnection.CreateFile(stPathFilename) where
the filename ends with .sqlite.
