Firebird/InterBase databases provide case insensitive data capabilities for both tables and queries but no such feature seems to exist in the PHP interface to either Firebird or InterBase.

The data we need to access will have wide variations in uppercase and lowercase such as McGraw, Macarthur, MacArthur, Magee, MaGee as well as similar variations in data such as "the Last..." versus "The Last...", "an Invitat..." versus "An Invit..." or even "an invit..".

Please provide a method of issuing a query for "McGraw" that would find "mcgraw", "Mcgraw", and "mcGraw".

What exactly is the limitation that the PDO-Firebird (or Interbase) interfaces has?

What sort of query or procedure can you do on a firebird client (such as IBExpert) that you cannot do through the pdo/interbase interfaces?
