Database Files

From InterBase

Go Up to Database Configuration and Maintenance

InterBase database files are in many cases self-contained. All the data and indexes are maintained as data structures within one type of file. The transaction log is also kept within this file.

You can extend the functions available in InterBase database metadata by creating libraries of functions compiled in your language of choice. You can compile functions into a dynamic library (called a DLL on Windows, and a shared library on UNIX) and use them in queries, stored procedures, triggers, views, and so on.
