And here are the steps i have made to reach that point
http://mapopa.blogspot.com/2010/05/transforming-old-interbase-60-docs-from.html

Wondering what changed on Earth in last, say, four weeks. I’m getting more than average (read: more than zero) emails, asking whether FirebirdClient works with InterBase. Similarly in mailing list.
