This chapter describes how to use API dynamic SQL (DSQL) functions to handle dynamically created SQL statements for data definition and manipulation. Using low-level API calls enables client applications to build SQL statements or solicit them from end users at runtime, providing end users with a familiar database interface. It also provides applications developers low-level access to InterBase features, such as multiple databases, not normally available at a higher level with embedded DSQL statements. For example, the InterBase isql utility is a DSQL application built on low-level API calls.

All API DSQL function names begin with “isc_dsql” to make it easier to distinguish them from other API calls.
