No. A script is nothing but a batch of statements. The is no conditional
logic, no local variables, etc.

No. But you can write a utility program that courses through the system
tables and outputs a script that it eventually runs. You could look at the
source for the scripting tool in IB_SQL for some clues about how to do
something like this. Some of the commercial admin tools have such
utilities, I believe.
