Error when creating view. Token unknown - line X, char Y FIRST
You'd get this error message when you try to create a view using FIRST clause in your SELECT. Something like:
CREATE VIEW EV(EMP_NO)
SELECT FIRST 10 EMP_NO
Support for FIRST in views is added in Firebird 2.0.1. In fact, Firebird 2 treats VIEWs as regular selects, so there are no special restrictions anymore.
