InterBase doesn't have a Boolean type - you define your own using a
domain. It can be whatever you like but most people use either a
VARCHAR(1), some variation on 'T' and 'F' or a smallint with 0 and 1, using
CHECK constraints to force them to be one of the two chosen values.

Get hold of the InterBase 6 documentation and read the Data Definition
guide and the Language Reference. Here is a link:
