.gdb file extension

Does anyone know how to open a .gdb file.  It appears to be some kind of database but I would like to take a look at the data.  

What kind of app can I use to open the file and save it in a more recognizable format.

.gdb is Interbase database file.

You can find more about Interbase at:

You can use the downloaded trial version of IBExpert. You can get this from:

www.ibexpert.com

Getting it out may be very difficult as IB is a relational DB structure. The easiest way would be with SQL and writing out to ASCII files. This can be done with IBExpert as well.

You will need to login to it. The defaults are

User:     SYSDBA
Password: masterkey

If this does not work, return for IB hacks.

Thanks for the suggestion YodaMage but it didn't seem to work.  After installing the software and trying to connect to the .gdb file it just hung.

I would really appreciate any other suggestions and I am increasing the points to 200.
