Hi Bob!
	I don't think that it need to write a README file for 30 lines of code. I'll continue
to write ISQL.C program but using pure VMS facilities ($CLI, $FAO) for my own needs.

	I will "port" with a pleasure whole freetds package when it will be ready for
end-user (it's not so at the time).

Ps:To list maintainer:please, remove a "Welcome to get out" stuff, added at end of an
every mail.
