Abstract: Connection options: API, Embedded SQL, ODBC, JDBC and Kylix soon.

Problem:
How is Interbase accessed in a Linux program? 

Solution:
Applications access InterBase via one of the access 
methods that InterBase provides.  All InterBase clients
can access all InterBase servers, even if the server is on
another platform.

Available options are:
  * InterBase API
  * Embedded SQL application with GPRE (InterBase preprocessor)
  * ODBC (InterBase has an ODBC driver on Windows only)
  * JDBC (InterServer is available for Linux v5.x only)

Linux only supports the TCP/IP network protocol.  All clients must access
the Linux server either locally or over the network (via TCP/IP).
