Well, if you contact the Patricia Seybold Group and *PURCHASE* the UNIX RDBMS Features Comparison Matrix dated Sept 30,1992 (J R Davis) you should get a quick comparison chart for

Informix Online 5.0
Ingres 6.4
InterBase 3.2 (soon to be 3.3)
Oracle 7
Progress 6
Sybase 4.9

It is about 33 pages long in tabular format. Most vendors keep such a list for their own use (we do), given how hard/long it takes to keep it up to date, I doubt that too many will give it away. This is probably the next best thing unless you wanted databases not in the list.
