3.1.1. Full SQL 92 Compliance

FrontBase implements the full SQL 92 standard. Great care has been taken to implement all features defined by the standard and implement them as defined by the standard. While the FrontBase documentation provides several tutorial examples of using SQL 92 with FrontBase, the ultimate guide to SQL 92 is the standard itself. You can obtain the standard from ANSI for a fee:

SQL 92 Standard at ANSI

An excellent book by renowned database experts C. J. Date and Hugh Darwen is:

A Guide to the SQL Standard, Fourth Edition

While it offers an academic approach, it is a very amusing book. Date and Darwen are not fans of many of the decisions that resulted in the final SQL 92 standard.
