qli(1) Firebird query language interpreter


qli [option...]


This manual page documents briefly the qli command.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a (free) manual page. Instead, it has non-free documentation you can get from InterBase (Borland) or FireBird project sites; see at the end of the document.

qli is an interpreter for a query language on Firebird and Interbase databases.

qli is mainly provided for backwards compatibility for Interbase 4.0 and 3.3 and isn't supported anymore. This manpage has been reconstructed from the source of the qli tool and is likely to contain mistakes. If you find any, please report them as bugs.
